Birds Hill Oxshott Estate Co.… It is important to retain local employment areas to reduce commuting times and pressure on infrastructure such as roads and public transport. Regular review of the ability of employment areas to meet contemporary needs should take place within the planning process. 21 Mar 2017 11:06

Deleted User This approach fails to recognise the potential that retail and other economic uses have an important role to play in the economy. For example, the Elmbridge Baseline and FEA 2016 finds that there are some 5,606 jobs in retail use within Elmbridge, representing some 9.52% of the total workforce. Retail is also seen as one of the prominent
employment sectors compared to other areas in Surrey and the South East (see Table 5 of the LEP). Therefore, the role of these jobs should not be under-estimated, since they provide an important contribution to the local economy in Elmbridge. In addition, the way in which retail and traditional B-class employment uses interact is
blurring, which the increase use of the Internet and click and collect facilities, and indeed in the future the role of 3D printing and other innovations will need to be considered. This means that the traditional B-class uses (and the jobs within them) are blurring, with retail units often having a dual role of both a retail outlet, as well as facility for click and collect orders. There are often close synergies between retail uses and some forms of B8 uses, particularly logistics. Furthermore, it is quite possible for retail uses to facilitate increased
B class uses in certain locations, which will result in an aggregate uplift of retail and industrial jobs.
