Black Country Plan Evidence Base

A key requirement of the planning system is to demonstrate how and why plans have been produced. In doing this it is necessary to consider the guidance and information contained in a wide variety of documents. This is collectively known as the 'evidence base'.

The Black Country Local Authorities need to ensure we have an up to date evidence base to help identify the key issues and ensure the Plan meets the development needs, challenges and opportunities for the Black Country up to 2039.

You can view the evidence base which has been prepared by clicking on the thematic icons. A summary explaining the purpose of the evidence and its outcomes is available to download.
