The Role of Development Plans: Monitoring and Review
3.34 It is important that the overall quantity of land allocated for industrial and business purposes in a development plan, as well as its location and type, are closely monitored to ensure that there is a continuing stock of suitable land for such uses. Such monitoring will help to identify shortfalls both quantitatively and qualitatively which arise over the plan period, perhaps leading to the need for a formal alteration or replacement of the plan.
3.35 Where in the course of monitoring, land allocated for industrial or business purposes is found to be unsuitable or is not made available, then the Department will consider whether it should be de-zoned or re-allocated to another use as part of any formal alteration or replacement of the plan.
