Overview - Employment land

Contrary to national trends, too much potential development land within the town centre is being allocated for retail or commercial development rather than housing.

High added value businesses are welcome in the borough, but much of the employment land is designated for retail or low added value employment floorspace, which only exacerbates current issues such as lack of low cost housing and heavy traffic.

Sites such as the Burnt Common Triangle, currently in the Green Belt, are inappropriate for heavy industry.
