Monitoring Reports and Land Supply

View our Annual Monitoring information and our Five Year Land Supply report

The Fenland district covers an area of 546 sq km (211 sq miles). We are one of the leading districts in Cambridgeshire in the provision of renewable energy, particularly wind energy.

Fenland's Monitoring Reports

We produce a Monitoring Report every year. This provides a review of:

  • performance and progress against the timetables set out in the Local Development Scheme (LDS);
  • how well the strategy, objectives and policies in Local Development Documents are being delivered;
  • progress on the preparation of documents associated with the Local Plan;
  • the need to update the LDS

The Research team at Cambridgeshire County Council also produce a wide range of County and District wide statistics and reports.

National Policy states that where HDT results fall below 95%, we must prepare an action plan to assess the causes for under delivery and to identify actions that could help increase delivery in the future. In 2019 we achieved 92% and prepared the following Action Plan:
