Each year progress on the implementation of the London Plan is measured and reported in the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR).
Section 346 of the Greater London Authority (GLA) Act 1999 places a duty on the Mayor to monitor the implementation of the Mayor’s London Plan. The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) is the central document in the monitoring process and assessing the effectiveness of the London Plan.
The nineth AMR published by the Mayor in March 2013 is the second that supports the 2011 London Plan, which introduced six new strategic objectives, and a new suite of 24 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor delivery. These KPIs are at the core of this and future AMRs (see chapter 3).

Paragraph 8.18 of the London Plan clarifies that the target for each indicator should be regarded as a benchmark, showing the direction and scale of change. These targets contribute to measuring the performance of the objectives set out in Policy 1.1 and paragraph 1.53 of the London Plan but do not represent additional policy in themselves.
The inclusion of additional relevant performance measures and statistics helps to paint a broader picture of London’s performance (see chapter 4).
The AMR draws on a range of data sources, but the GLA’s London Development Database (LDD) is of central importance. The LDD is a “live” system monitoring planning permissions and completions. It provides good quality, comprehensive data for the GLA, London boroughs and others involved in planning for London.
The Mayor has published an AMR in spring each year since 2005. Previous reports can be downloaded below:
