Evidence base - West Dorset, Weymouth & Portland

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. This evidence will be used to produce the  Review of the Local Plan.

DorsetExplorer is a web-based mapping system that includes useful information on map based evidence such as designations and floodplains.

There are a number of existing reports that form part of our evidence base. In addition, new studies have been published. More information on these new studies and how to get involved can be found on our  Local Plan Review evidence, research and information page.
