Devon Town Profiles

The profiles, 29 in total covering the area of Devon County Council, have been generated by Strategic Intelligence and are an important resource contribution to local community planning work.

The profiles provide a statistical overview, based on a series of facts and figures, of what life is like in each "Devon town" area. Each of the 29 profiles contains a baseline of information and are intended to provide the basis for further discussion and development within the County Council and with partners.

In light of these discussions the profiles can grow into more rounded pictures describing "how things are" for each area, as well as to set out the likely future actions that will be needed to redress any gaps in service or unmet needs.

The profiles are structured around a series of themes to cover social, economic and environmental well being. This is a starting point in producing profiles about our "Devon town" areas in which considerable effort has been made to provide a comprehensive series of data. Further data will be added to subsequent editions as they become available, to provide a more complete picture and monitor trends.

Much of the information contained in each of the town profile documents can be viewed via interactive maps developed by the Strategic Intelligence team.
