Epping Forest Mini Observatory

A key message that we have been given by our partners is the need to share information better and help support those local groups bidding for money or planning services, to access good quality data. To achieve this the partnership has launched this Mini Observatory.

The Mini Observatory brings together for the first time in one place a wide range of data about the area and our people, including demographic facts, survey results, information about crime, and health and profiles of each of the 32 Wards in the district. This is a pilot project at the minute and we would very much welcome your views.

Reports and documents are in PDF format. Some are fairly large and may take a while to load.

Shaping the Future

The Shaping the Future report is a district wide data profile supported
by a range of local partners but particularly officers from
Essex County Council who have sourced and collated much of the
information this profile of the district contains.

Story of Place

The 'Story of Place' is part of Epping Forest District's contribution towards the Local Area Agreement (LAA) for Essex.
It describes the district from an objective perspective. The framework draws on the main headings of our
Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) Community Strategy (plus Children and Young People) incorporated within the
themes published in the November 07 briefing paper provided by Essex County Council. In this approach we
seek to create clear links between the issues identified by the LSP and the broader strategic issues dealt with under
the LAA.
