Employment land strategies

Employment land strategies summarise the economic settings, barriers to growth and opportunities associated with employment land in a particular local government area.

They identify land use and transport planning actions required to meet projected growth and provide for future local jobs.


We have written a guideline for local employment land strategies (PDF, 635 KB) to help councils prepare employment land strategies as part of their planning frameworks. It sets out a process to help councils prepare strategies and create a robust evidence base to inform land use planning and associated actions.

The guideline is supported by these papers:

Councils can also request data packs based on the 2016 Census from the department by emailing [email protected]
