Local Development Plan - the process

Review and Development of Evidence Base

The council is required to prepare and maintain an up-to-date information base on all aspects of social, economic and environmental characteristics of the county borough, to enable the preparation of a 'sound' Local Development Plan. This information baseline is known as the evidence base.

The Caerphilly LDP must be based on a sound body of evidence, and the council proposes to make all significant data and analyses used in preparing the plan available on these pages.

Please note that the evidence base will increase as the preparation of the plan proceeds.
