LTP help notes

Back to local authority long-term plans

LTP data has been provided in MS Excel format, including a single Excel (xlsx) workbook for the 2018-28, another for the 2015-25 LTPs and multiple 97-2003 (xls) workbooks for all previous LTP datasets.

With regard to the most recent LTP dataset, the first tab contains notes about the dataset, the second tab contains a table of the raw dataset and the subsequent tabs include a pivot table and chart based upon this raw data.

Pivot tables/charts allow you to filter large amounts of data to quickly and easily identify the information you want.

To download this dataset to your own computer, select “file” and “save as” from the main toolbar on your screen, open the folder in which you wish to save the document and confirm the document name.

Further notes are provided in the downloads themselves.
