The Department of Economic Development, in conjunction with the Department of Infrastructure, is preparing an Employment Land Review Study to inform future allocations of employment land across the Island.
In order to help facilitate this, local firms are encouraged to complete a short survey to provide views on the suitability of their existing accommodation along with their likely future requirements.
Minister for Economic Development John Shimmin MHK said:
‘The findings of this study will have an influence on our ability to deliver the aims of Vision2020, the Isle of Man’s plan for its economic future. In order to help achieve the sustainable growth of 3%-4% per year as forecast in Vision2020 it’s vital that we do all we can to ensure the availability of suitable land and premises to enable businesses to grow.
‘Vision2020 was developed in conjunction with the private sector and it’s important that we gain the same level of engagement from local firms for this study. We need to ensure we appreciate the future requirements for business in the Island.’
The short survey can be completed by visiting http://www.gov.im/elrs
All responses to the survey will be treated in the strictest confidence.
