Chelmsford City Council

Evidence base

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

To view the Submission Documents, use the Categories list and select 'Submission Documents'. 

To find other evidence base documents, you can:

  • use the Categories list to filter by topic
  • search by keywords

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

  • reference number
  • title
  • author
  • creation date

If you want to view a particular document, you can search for it using the reference number. If you do search using the reference number, you do not need to include a space. For example, if you wanted to view EB 001, search for EB001 without a space between the letters and the numbers.
