To assess progress against the plan-making milestones set out in the Local Development Scheme and the implementation of the policies and proposals in the Local Plan, the Council prepares a Monitoring Report each year.
The latest Authority Monitoring Report (AMR) for 2019/20 can be downloaded from the Downloads menu on the right hand side of this page.
Prior to the production of the AMR, the Council produces a separate Housing Statistics Release. A copy of the June 2021 release setting out some key housing statistics to 31 March 2021 is availabe to download below.

The AMR includes statistics gathered directly by the Council e.g. housing and employment permissions and completions, and also relevant data from other parties e.g. ONS, inclusing statistics on population and hosueholds.
ONS's 2019 mid-year population estimate for the borough (MYE) shows a further rise in population to 88,900, the sixth successive yearly rise.
ONS's latest population and household projections for Burnley (the 2018-based projections) indicate significantly higher future population and household growth from that indicated in the previous 2014 and 2016-based projections.
