Local Plan evidence and supporting documents

The purpose of the evidence base

It is important that our strategy for the future development of the borough is based on an understanding of the characteristics that make Barnet what it is, and a knowledge of how it is likely to change. We have been collecting information from many sources to help us identify the key issues and opportunities for the future of the borough and provide a strong basis for our planning strategy and policies. This information is usually known as the “evidence base”.
