HC Deb 18 December 1995 vol 268 c924W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate his Department has made of the future requirement for new industrial sites in(a) the south-west and (b) South Hams and the number of jobs these will generate. [6589]

Sir Paul Beresford

The Department has not made any estimate of the future requirement for industrial sites in the region, but the regional planning guidance for the south-west advises that development plans should make adequate provision for land employment-related development.

The third alteration to the Devon structure plan. as approved in March 1994, provides for about 774 hectares of employment land in the county between 1989 and 2001, of which 115 hectares arc allocated to South Hams district. The structure plan does not make any estimate of the number of jobs this will generate.
