Geography[edit]

La Bastide-de-Lordat is in the Pamiers urban area some 8 km east by north-east of Pamiers and 5 km north of Les Pujols. Access to the commune is by the D11 road from Pamiers which enters the west of the commune then turns north continuing to Belpech, changing to the D102 at the departmental border. Access to the village is by the D430 from Trémoulet in the north, by the D30 from Saint-Amadou in the south, and by the D6 from Lapenne in the east. The D30 continues past the village north-west to Montaut. The commune is almost entirely farmland with a few small patches of forest.[3][4]

The Hers river forms the whole eastern border of the commune as it flows north to join the Ariege near Cintegabelle. The Estaut stream forms the whole western border of the commune as it flows north to join the Hers north-west of Belpech.[3][4]

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 264 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 Archived 18 November 2016 at the Wayback Machine., the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually and the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
