Evidence base is the term given to all the documents and information used to underpin the development of a Neighbourhood Plan and its policies or the proposals in a Neighbourhood Development Order. Neighbourhood Planners need to ensure that proportionate, robust evidence supports the choices made and the approach taken. The evidence is drawn upon to explain the intention and rationale of the policies in a Neighbourhood Plan.
The document table shown here holds local evidence used in creating Lyonshall Neighbourhood Development Plan. This includes documentation recording consultation with residents, where the steering group have given parishioners the opportunity to view, comment and discuss the emerging plan at different stages. It also records other relevant documentation from community groups, services and businesses collected during the Neighbourhood Planning Process.
