Employment Land Reviews

Land Use Information Banner


A number of studies have been undertaken in relation to employment land across the city. These help us plan for the future in our Planning Policy documents, and in particular the emerging Birmingham Development Plan (BDP).

Employment Land Reviews provide analysis of the employment land supply in Birmingham. They include recommended actions to maximise the City's employment land potential.

Employment Land & Office Targets Study (2013)

This study was undertaken to inform the policies of the BDP. It provides information to enable us to maintain an adequate reservoir of readily available land to accommodate new or expanding businesses in the City.

Employment Land Review (2012)

The 2012 review below shows the available supply of high quality employment land in the City is falling short of our targets. The development of employment land has inevitable been affected by the economic downturn. However, the employment land market was performing well before the recession and there is reason to assume that the market will recover as positive economic growth resumes.

Employment Land Study for Economic Zones and Key Sectors (2012)

In addition to these documents we undertook a study of employment land for identified potential growth in our new Economic Zones and growth sectors in the city's economy. The study is below.
