One of a series of texts on environmental planning for use in undergraduates and postgraduate planning courses and for those involved in all aspects of the planning process. This book combines the findings of new research and previous empirical studies to provide the first comprehensive evaluation of property and industrial development. The role of land and buildings in industrial and economic development, both local and national, has been substantially ignored until now. However, there is growing evidence that shortcomings in Britain's factory stock are both affecting growth and efficiency in industry and influencing the location of jobs. The book looks first at the way in which trends in the national economy, including the downturn in manufacturing performance, affect the demand for and supply of industrial land and buildings. After a closer look at the development processes through which factories are built, the text then deals with the use of factory buildings, focusing on the mismatch between original design and present use. Later chapters deal with the role of the public sector and the special needs of small firms, and the book concludes by looking at the requirements of the industrial property market for reindustrialization, seting out the bold changes in public policy which the authors deem necessary. The book is intended for students on planning and surveying courses and for those specializing in these fields on geography, economics and management courses. Practitioners in the property professions, local authorities, central government and financial institutions will find the work invaluable.
