Local Plan 2040 – Evidence Base

The Winchester District Evidence Base is information collected on key aspects of the social, economic and environmental characteristics of the district,  to inform the preparation of planning documents including Local Plan and other policies.  Reports and documents will be added as they are agreed and finalised so please check these pages regularly

The Local Plan Evidence Base and the assumptions and forecasts that are contained within them, have all been prepared prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.  In light of the current situation, some of the Evidence Base will need refreshing as the Local Plan moves through the Plan-making stages and the situation becomes much clearer from Government on the economic outlook.   

Documents marked with an * are subject to final minor amendment and change prior to the forthcoming draft local plan consultation, which is expected to commence in November. Further updates will therefore be placed on this page, including confirmation of their status, at the time that the consultation begins.
