Data for the areas identified in the Wales Spatial Plan, 2008 Update
The bulletin is informed by the wider Wales Spatial Plan data resource (first published in late 2007), which has been developed to include updates to existing data as well as some new data items. The updated resource will be available on the Welsh Assembly Government website from 1 December 2008, providing access to a set of themed data spreadsheets for each of the six areas, along with a spreadsheet for each theme, showing all the areas alongside each other.
