Employment Lands Development Monitor

The Employment Lands Development Monitor (ELDM) is a source of information and a research tool used by developers, investors, Government agencies, utilities and councils in the planning, delivery and servicing of employment lands.

The ELDM contains information on lands zoned for industrial or similar purposes in planning instruments (please see the glossary for full list of zonings tracked).  This information includes the:

  • current stock and availability of employment lands,
  • location of serviced employment lands which are ready for development
  • location of recently developed employment lands, and
  • location of potential future employment lands.

See the highlights below or read the ELDM Summary Report (PDF, 3.5 MB).
