7. Monitoring and Implementation

INTRODUCTION

7.1 This Chapter sets out the key mechanisms that the Council will employ to maximise the opportunities for the successful implementation of the Core Strategy Spatial Vision and Strategic Spatial Objectives. The implementation and performance of the policies will be measured against an integrated data set of indicators and targets (Monitoring Framework) that fully embed those of the Sustainable Community Strategy, Local Area Agreement, the Council’s Corporate Strategy; other linked strategies and the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). Should the monitoring of policies show significant variance from expected results and targets, then this might trigger a review of polices in the LDF.

IMPLEMENTATION FRAMEWORK

7.2 The Implementation Framework sets out how the Core Strategy policies are likely to be delivered and how required development will be delivered on the ground.

7.3 The Council does not have the power, resources or mechanism to implement the Core Strategy alone and implementation of the policies will require action by a range of public, private and voluntary sector bodies working in partnership. 

7.4 The Council will use all of its statutory powers, resources and community leadership role to influence events, negotiate and bid for resources so as to make its full contribution to the overall success of the Core Strategy and Sustainable Community Strategy.

7.5 The Council’s key Implementation Mechanism includes:

Shaping Thurrock Local Strategic Partnership
The Shaping Thurrock Partnership is key to the delivery of the Core Strategy.  It will be the major partnership through which the active involvement of all partners, agencies, stakeholders and the wider community will be secured. 

Thurrock’s Local Area Agreement (LAA)
The LAA is a contract between Government and Thurrock’s main public sector agencies and voluntary groups, with clearly agreed targets to improve performance in key areas. The LAA sets out short-term priorities, expressed as outcomes, of what the partnership expects to achieve by the end of the three-year period (2008-2011).

Each outcome has an Action Plan with indicators that set out how progress will be monitored during the life of the LAA.  These indicators and targets, where applicable, have been fully integrated into the Core Strategy Monitoring Framework.

Shaping Thurrock Programme Boards
Performance information will be supplied regularly to the relevant Shaping Thurrock Programme Board.  These Boards are accountable for the delivery of their Action Plans.

Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation (TTGDC)
Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation (TTGDC) has regeneration resources, planning control over major developments and land assembly powers, and is are prioritising the regeneration of particular communities in Thurrock. 

Infrastructure Prioritisation and Implementation Programme 2006-2021
The Council has produced the Thurrock Infrastructure Prioritisation and Implementation Programme (February 2010). This will be the driver for providing the full range of social and community, utility and transport infrastructure to underpin sustainable residential communities. The Implementation Programme will be considered by the Council, TTGDC and partners as the basis for negotiating, obtaining and delivering the necessary infrastructure to underpin the growth agenda and provide the basis for negotiating with public and private sector funding providers. 

Council Review of its Land Holdings and Implementation of Strategies
The Council will keep its own land holdings under continuous review to ensure that opportunities for beneficial use of land that may become available are fully optimised.  The Council will ensure that the relevant strategies and investment programmes that are its lead statutory responsibility, including Housing and Education, are fully coordinated in support of the delivery of the Core Strategy.

Thurrock Council Corporate Strategy and Service Plans
The Council will ensure that its Corporate Strategy and Service Plans are fully supportive of the delivery of the over-arching Community Strategy and Local Area Action Plans and thereby help to deliver the relevant spatial dimension of these, as expressed in the Core Strategy.  In particular, those aspects of the Council’s service delivery activities that have a spatial dimension, including the implementation of the Greengrid, represent a major commitment to secure improvements in the quality of the local environment for the people of Thurrock.

The Management of Development Process
The Council will work with TTGDC to ensure that consideration of development proposals and application of the Strategic Spatial, Thematic and Management of Development Policies will be implemented on a rigorous and consistent basis. 

Implementation of the Management of Development Policies (PMD1 – PMD16) will be through the Management of Development process itself.  The Council will be able to advise potential developers on meeting the specific requirements of the PMD policies, both through pre-application discussions and following submission of planning applications, to ensure that all PMD policies are fully implemented.  The Council will also be able to achieve the objectives of policies via the use of conditions and/or by way of obligations, where appropriate. 

Monitoring of the PMD policies will be achieved through the collation of information relevant to specific targets set out in individual policies, where appropriate.  Monitoring will also be achieved via planning conditions or agreements requiring developers to demonstrate or certify that requirements have/will be met, where necessary. Ultimately enforcement will be achieved via the service of enforcement or breach of condition notices or legal proceedings to enforce the terms of obligations as appropriate.

7.6 Each of the Strategic Spatial and Thematic Policies includes detail of lead and partner agencies; plans and programmes; mechanisms and/or actions required; and broad timescales of implementation.  The timescales and details given are correct as of January 2010.

7.7 Table 15, on the following pages, provides the details of the Implementation Framework for all the Core Strategy Policies grouped by themes in line with those set out in the Thematic Policy Section of the Core Strategy.

MONITORING FRAMEWORK

7.8 This section sets out the proposed Monitoring Framework. Monitoring is vital to interpreting the current and future state of Thurrock’s social, economic, environmental and physical characteristics. The trends displayed by the baseline social, economic, environmental and physical information will be compared against the relevant Core Strategy Policy indicators and targets to determine whether they are performing as anticipated. This data will be reported on in the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) which will be submitted to Government for information by the end of December each year and be publicly available at approximately the same time.                                                        

7.9 The Monitoring Framework also highlights the SEA/SA Objectives associated with the Strategic Spatial Objectives, ensuring that the monitoring of the Core Strategy will also help assess the extent to which sustainable development is delivered throughout Thurrock.

7.10 The Monitoring Framework is made up of three types of indicators:

  • Contextual Indicators – which provide a background to the Borough, including social, economic and environmental factors (Table 16)
  • Core Output Indicators – which are statutory and set by the government and;
  • Significant Effect Indicators – which are there to measure the significant effects of the policies/plan.

7.11 Table 17 shows the Core Output and Significant Effect Indicators which are grouped into themes, in line with those set out in the Thematic Policy Section of the Core Strategy.  Some indicators are relevant to more than one theme and are therefore repeated.  Where this is the case, the repeated indicator is shown in grey and the previous reference shown.
