HC Deb 12 March 1991 vol 187 c476W
Mr. Dover

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if, for the purpose of county structure plans and local plans, employment land is deemed to include land for all types of employment such as industry, retail, commercial and leisure.

Sir George Young

[holding answer 11 March 1991]: No. Plans should make distinctions between different types of employment-generating development, to the extent that they have different implications for land use. Retail development, for example, will often have different implications from industrial use. Further advice is given in the relevant planning policy guidance notes.
