The Story of Bath and North East Somerset - In Data 2023

You may recall the release of the Bath and North East Somerset Strategic Evidence Base back in the Summer, which told the story of Bath and North East Somerset through its data.

BaNES Council are now pleased to release a re-published version with additional findings and updated content, which may be of great use to those making funding applications.

The data is designed to be used to support decision making and strategic planning across the area. It is an evolving document and presents the Council's best understanding at the current point in time. It is therefore a useful resource to those curating funding application's for their organisations, who can utilise this information to support and strengthen their applications.

The resource provides detailed insight into areas such as population, health, inequality, growth, emissions and housing. In the republished update, the following changes have been incorporated:
