The first stage in preparing the Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP) is to review information from the existing evidence base and gather further evidence where necessary. This is required as the RLDP must be based on robust and up-to-date evidence and also to ensure the Plan is  found  ‘sound’ at examination. This includes plans and proposals from other organisations. The evidence base will be updated throughout the Plan preparation process.
