Information about the district

Our ‘Knowing Wychavon Communities' report pulls together information and intelligence about the Wychavon district and its residents from a wide range of sources. The purpose of the document is to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the district to support strategic priority setting, decision making and planning of services to meet customers' needs.

The report is structured under three sections covering people, place and prosperity. These contain a rich array of information drawn from sources including the Census, Office of National Statistics, Wychavon health profiles, Worcestershire Economic Assessment and Worcestershire Viewpoint surveys.

Ward profiles examine the characteristics of each of 32 wards in the district.  They include information on the population, housing, education and levels of deprivation in the ward and use the most recent available data as well as links to live data.

Parish profiles will be added as they are completed and contain information on the population, housing and deprivation of the individual parish.
