EM9  Non-Employment Uses in Industrial Areas  Policy

Proposals for retail or housing uses on land allocated for employment purposes will not be permitted.

Reasoned justification :

5.32 One of the key roles of the UDP is to identify and safeguard the long-term supply of employment land, including sites of different type and size. Permitting other uses on land allocated under Proposal EM3 and Proposal EM4 would not only reduce the overall supply of employment land but may also introduce uses which are incompatible with existing industrial activities, creating problems for the occupiers of the new and existing developments, and, for example, leading to the imposition of costly new restrictions or conditions relating to environmental health or pollution control.
