Dorset Local Plan - Evidence Base

An important part of the planning system is gathering evidence and factual information to help identify the issues and needs of the area.

Evidence can come from reports, strategies, specific pieces of research and from a wide range of sources including organisations that operate at a local level or organisations that operate on a wider level but have specialist knowledge or expertise.

There are a number of existing reports that have formed part of our evidence base for the currently adopted former district and borough Local Plans. This evidence together with the evidence prepared for the Local Plan Reviews will, where appropriate, help inform the production of the Dorset Local Plan.  This page contains evidence which has been prepared for the Dorset Local Plan.

Some of our evidence and information can be displayed on maps, DorsetExplorer is a web-based mapping system that includes useful information on map based evidence such as designations and floodplains.
