The Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) provides information on all aspects of the planning department's performance. 

Every year we collect and analyse a wide range of development statistics from within the Colchester borough. This helps us achieve a better understanding of changes in development patterns in the borough and helps us to refine our planning policies to take account of important trends whilst also providing information for stakeholders to understand local development activity. 

Although the requirement of local authorities to prepare and publicise an AMR was removed in April 2012, we will continue to produce an annual report as an effective means of monitoring our planning performance. 

In line with national policy, the Annual Monitoring Report has been renamed the Authority Monitoring Report. 

The most recent report covers the year 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.
