In England quantified targets for the reuse of brownfields and of existing buildings place particular requirements on the planning system as part of the overall strategy to make effective use of natural resources. Achieving these targets is not free of obstacles and potential conflicts. Therefore monitoring of policy implementation is a necessity in the planning system. In addition challenging targets for increased housing provision have been introduced. In view of this the dichotomy of adequate housing-land supply without compromising environmental quality must be addressed. As a consequence monitoring will play an increasingly important role. This paper explores how these challenges can be met. It draws upon practical experience across all planning tiers to highlight the potential and limitations of indicator based monitoring.
