Our Data Evidence Base

Our Preparations 

We have been preparing for community planning over a number of years, through pilot programmes and existing partnerships which have provided us with a strong platform for the future.

  1. Data Gathering:

We are currently analysing key strategic available data with the support of SMART REGION under three themes and have provided links of summary information to all below. Or alternatively you can download copies of the data summary sheets from the ‘Related Files’ panel.

Social Data Summary

Economic Data Summary

Environmental Summary 


A full summary of the data will be made available when the process has been completed and will be updated and renewed regularly; for use of others and key stakeholders in the community and the local development planning process.

Please keep logging in for updates and also don’t forget to check us out on facebook for more regular updates.
