Marketing assessment

This is required if your project will cause either:

  • loss of floor space which used to be used for employment purposes
  • loss of a retail (Use Class A1) unit in a local centre
  • loss of an isolated retail unit which provides for everyday needs

You are required to give evidence that the site is being comprehensive and actively marketed for its current use.

For Strategic Employment Sites and Locally Significant Employment Sites, the period of marketing should conform with the periods set out in Local Plan: Strategy and Sites 2019 policy E3. For loss of a retail unit as above, the minimum marketing period is 12 months (Local Plan: Strategy and Sites policies E5 and E9).
