The West Cumbria Employment Land and Premises Study was commissioned by Copeland and Allerdale Borough Councils.
It provides an up to date assessment of supply and demand for employment sites in West Cumbria which will feed into the two Authorities Local Development Frameworks and wider economic development planning. Its specific objectives are to: assess the future demand and supply for employment land in the area; assess the suitability of individual sites, existing, permitted and proposed, for employment uses; identify sites which are unlikely to be required by the market or are unsustainable for employment development; develop appropriate further policy responses in the light of the supply and demand assessment. The West Cumbria Employment Land and Premises Study was published in 2008 and the West Cumbria Employment Land Review Update in 2012.
