We have undertaken a wide range of research to help us develop our new Local Plan, which we adopted on 27 May 2020. 

Our evidence base includes:

  • background information
  • our existing strategies and planning policies
  • specially commissioned studies on topics where more information is helpful to us

The evidence base is part of the Local Plan Submission for the Local Plan examination. The evidence base covers topics such as:

  • environment
  • heritage
  • population
  • transport
  • economy
  • infrastructure

You can download the Examination Library Reference List. The list includes all of the documents in the evidence base, with its:

  • reference number
  • title
  • author
  • creation date
