Economic Statement

This applies to all applications proposing either new employment development or loss of existing employment use that is not in accordance with planning policy.

Such statements should set out any regeneration benefits from the proposed development, including:

• details of any new jobs that might be created or supported;
• the relative floorspace totals for each proposed use (where known); and
• reference to any regeneration strategies that might lie behind or be supported by the proposal.

NB: - the standard application forms include questions on employment generation.

However, an economic statement allows further details on the jobs a proposal would create.
