Employment land study (November 2009)
A review of employment land in the borough(pdf, 860KB) has been carried out by URS. The study provided advice on policy direction, included an audit of existing employment land and premises, and future supply, provided an analysis of the local economy and likely growth/contraction and identified potential gaps in provision.
The findings confirm that there is a very limited amount of employment land in the borough. There is a strong case for the Local Development Framework to protect all existing employment sites unless they are inherently unsuitable.
This 2009 Employment Land Study is a supplementary document to the original 2006 Employment Land Study(pdf, 653KB).
