Economic Market Assessment

We commissioned consultants to produce a piece of evidence about the economic needs of the borough including an economic strategy for the borough, taking account of market realities, including growth scenarios and identifying certain sectors. The study also advised on future employment land requirements, including a detailed review of sites.

Monitoring

The Council also carries out regular monitoring on a range of economic and employment land issues, including surveys of key business areas. More information on the data we collect is available on the Plan Monitoring page.
