Employment Land Study (2007)
The Employment Land Study was commissioned in 2007 to provide an evidence based analysis of the district and recommendations on future employment planning policies.
The Study includes recommendations on:
- Determination of the amount of employment land required, by types of activity and their broad distribution.
- The need to protect employment land from being lost to alternative uses.
- The support for a wide range of economic activity in rural areas particularly through rural diversification and the reuse and adaptation of rural buildings to employment use; and
- The considerations to be applied in the expansions or diversification of existing employment concerns particulary those located outside development limits.
