Evidence base

Employment and economy

A background paper on Ealing’s economy was published in September 2009 that provides a summary of relevant strategies and assessments which have informed the preparation of the Development Strategy to-date, as well as identifying additional areas of work.

Background papers on industrial and office development were published in January 2006 together with an appendix containing maps.

An updated Employment Land Review (ELR) (pdf) published in September 2010 is now available. The ELR forecasts the prospects for office and industrial land in the borough and makes recommendations on which existing employment sites should be protected, or considered for other uses in the future.

The council has also participated in the production of a joint West London Local Economic Assessment published in April 2011. The aim of LEAs is to equip local authorities and partners with a common understanding of the local economic conditions and economic geography and the economic, social and environmental factors that impact on economic growth. This assessment provides an evidence base to inform a range of local strategies, policies and interventions including the Local Plans.
