Evidence base

Introduction

The council needs to prepare and maintain an up to date information base on key aspects of the social, economic and environmental characteristics of the area. This Local Plans (formerly known as LDF) evidence base helps enable the preparation of sound and robust plans and shows how the council have come to our conclusions in emerging Local Plan documents.

This section provides links to the relevant documents used in the preparation and production of the development plan documents. Where appropriate, they will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate to support the final proposals when plans are submitted for examination.
