The previous iteration of the NK Plan – the NK Plan 2017-20 - was informed by a detailed evidence base, the majority of which continues to remain relevant when reviewing and updating the NK Plan for the next three year cycle – 2018-21. The evidence base is known as S.T.E.E.P.L.E.D and covers social, economic, environmental, political, legislative, ethical and demographic factors that impact the district.
The S.T.E.E.P.L.E.D report may be found within the downloads section along with reports on the 2015 Index of Deprivation and Digital Exclusion. A light touch review was undertaken as part of the preparation work for the NK Plan 2018-21 with the updated SWOT summary for the district contained within the download section below. A full review of the S.T.E.E.P.L.E.D evidence base in planned for early summer 2018 and this section will be updated as new data and evidence becomes available.
For completeness the downloads section also contains the previous NK Plan (2017-20).
