Section 113: Local development: monitoring reports
253.Section 113 amends section 35 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. Section 35 required local planning authorities to make an annual report to the Secretary of State about the implementation of their local development schemes and local development policies. This section amends this requirement so that local planning authorities must publish this information direct to the public at least yearly in the interests of transparency. The local planning authority is no longer required to send a report to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State has powers to make regulations prescribing the timing, content and form of reports.
