Evidence, monitoring and information
Evidence and information
In addition to the Authority's Monitoring Report (AMR), which assesses how the Local Plan and its policies are progressing, we also collect evidence and information from other sources. These are detailed below.
Land availability lists
This is a list of possible development sites in Liverpool, which are mostly 'Brownfield' sites and empty buildings. For a list of sites to suit your needs, please contact the planning department.
- Merseyside Local Transport Plan.
- Merseyside and West Lancashire Gypsy & Traveller Accommodation Assessment August 2014.
We have published a Local Plan Viability Assessment to support the Local Plan. The role of the Viability Assessment is to ensure that the Local Plan policies are realistic, and that the total cumulative cost of all relevant policies will not undermine deliverability of the plan.
It is the responsibility of site promoters to engage in plan making, take into account any costs including their own profit expectations and risks, and ensure that proposals for development are policy compliant. The price paid for land is not a relevant justification for failing to accord with relevant policies in the plan.
