West Berkshire Council

District Needs Assessment (DNA)

Describing the district through data

What is the DNA?

To understand how best to plan and deliver services for the people of West Berkshire, we need to understand the area and communities we are working with, as well as external influences, which play a part in shaping our district. The DNA builds up a picture of the district, describing key characteristics that make West Berkshire what it is, as well as issues and influences on the social, economic, wellbeing and environmental fabric of the area.

It brings together a mix of current data and information from a variety of national, regional and local data sources and council sources.
