Background evidence on economic development and employment land

Economic reports that provide evidence for the Rushmoor Plan.

Employment land review (2016)

The Hart, Rushmoor and Surrey Heath employment land review (ELR) assesses the quantity and quality of employment land across the three council areas that together form a Functional Economic Area (FEA).  It refreshes the study published in 2015.

Employment land review (2015)

The Hart, Rushmoor and Surrey Heath employment land review (ELR) was produced in 2015.

Functional economic area analysis (2014)

Under national guidance, we have to consider the needs of the 'functional economic area' (FEA) within which Rushmoor is located, and we have to work with other councils to meet the identified needs of this functional economic area.

Many councils, like us, cover too small a geographical area to address most economic markets. Although there is no formal definition of functional economic areas and no definitive map of the geography of FEAs, the economic links and flows between different places inevitably vary depending on the issue or factor being analysed.

Thepdf icon Functional economic area analysis 2014 [1Mb] report examines the different ways in which the functional economic area, of which Rushmoor is part, can be defined. It then presents conclusions and recommendations that we can take forward in planning for economic development.

Key employment sites study (2012)

We commissioned consultancy GVA to carry out a review and assessment of each of the key employment sites in Rushmoor, as identified in the Core Strategy (adopted October 2011).

The study is a piece of evidence that will help to inform the early engagement stage of the Rushmoor Local Plan. Its recommendations should therefore be treated with appropriate weight.

Employment land review (2009)

This is a joint study with Hart District Council and Surrey Heath Borough Council, carried out by Nathaniel Litchfield and Partners in 2009.

Its purpose was to assess the quantity and quality of the employment land in Rushmoor and whether it would be able to meet our needs up to 2026.


Economic growth and employment land requirements in North Hampshire (2008)

Hampshire County Council and the north Hampshire local authorities commissioned this study, which was published in May 2008.

Its purpose was to clarify the issue of land requirement in north Hampshire as a whole, provide more robust figures for the South East plan and inform future employment land policies.

The state of the economy (2004 and 2008)

We commissioned consultants Roger Tym and Partners to complete this study.

It provided an assessment of the local economy and recommendations for the future.
