The SPACEial NW project stands for ‘Spatial Planning And Collaborative Exchange of information and learning in the North West Region Cross Border Area’. The project has spent the last three years gathering, analysing, mapping and presenting data in such a way as to ‘place it at the heart of decision making’. This website will be a key resource for any person or body wishing to make business or investment related decisions; to develop and review strategic policies and plans; tovisit the region or to make simple everyday decisions like deciding where they send their children to school or where to avail of local sporting facilities.
The website is based on the premise that good decision making in the region requires solid facts and statistics. It also adds a geographic dimension by breaking the statistics for the region into spatial categories that will allow decision makers to see through its Map Viewer, how these facts and statistics vary and where they vary e.g. differences across towns, electoral divisions, electoral wards, local district council areas etc. We would love to get your feed back and comments, so please feel free to contact us.
