Development monitoring ensures that we comply with Scottish Planning Policy and that the Moray Local Development Plan 2020 is providing effective development opportunities to enable growth within Moray.
Housing Land Audit
Scottish Planning Policy requires planning authorities to maintain a five year effective supply of land for housing. The 2021 Housing Land Audit provides a record of the effective and constrained housing land supply, as well as identifying past completion rates and projected housing completions.
The 2020 Housing Land Audit is available here.
Employment Land Audit
The Employment Land Audit is carried out annually to identify the extent and status of employment land supply in the area. The 2021 Employment Land Audit provides an evidence base for the monitoring and review of policies and proposals included in the Local Development Plan.
Moray Town Centre Health Check Assessments
Town Centre Health Checks are undertaken biennially to assess the vitality and viability of five Moray town centres: Elgin, Forres, Buckie, Keith, and Lossiemouth. Limited assessment is also undertaken in Aberlour, Dufftown, Fochabers, Rothes and the Edgar Road area of Elgin.
