Evidence, monitoring and information

Reports and studies that inform the development of the Local Plan

An evidence base is being prepared for the Lancaster District Local Plan. Evidence base documents can be found on this page, arranged by topic area. Some evidence base documents have been superseded by subsequent documents. Where documents have been superseded these are identified and retained in the evidence base for completeness. In addition to these documents other relevant documents such as the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG), which are available nationally, and other city and county council documents can form part of the evidence base.
