Industry, Business and Offices Monitoring Report 2019-20

Clydeplan have now published their industry, business and offices monitoring report for the period 2019-20. The monitoring report provides statistics and analysis of the land supply for industrial and business uses, provides details of the take up of land for these uses and the development of land for industry for business in the Strategic Development Plan area. The analysis is based on industrial and business land supply data provided by the Clydeplan’s constituent Authorities.

The monitoring process comprises of four main stages: 

                 I.          Monitoring of vacant industrial and business sites and an analysis of their changing character and suitability for development. This also includes both Specialised sites and land currently in use for industrial and business purposes but where no physical development has taken place and where such land could become immediately available for development if the current use ceased.

               II.          Monitoring of all industrial and business development trends, take up and development potential, including non-industrial activity in industrial zoned areas and on the industrial land supply.

              III.          Monitoring of the deallocation of industrial and business land

             IV.          An assessment of industrial and business related applications to provide an indication of potential additional floorspace, take-up and development potential and pressures, including change of use from industrial purposes to non-industrial uses.
