Clarification of Policy PED 7 of PPS 4 ' Planning and Economic Development'

Published on Thu, 1 Sep 2011 by planning.policy@doeni.gov.uk.
Policy PED 7 deals with the retention of zoned land and economic development uses.The purpose of the clarification is to ensure consistency in the approach taken to unzoned land used, or last used, for industrial or storage and distribution use , and how applications for their retention will be considered.
Previously land ‘last used’ for economic development on unzoned sites could be used for any type of development. Now if a site is cleared of an economic development, even if it is on unzoned land, it must still be used for economic purposes.
