In 2007-2008 the Planning Department undertook the preparation an industrial land inventory and study for Electoral Area B. This report was well received, and additional reports on each of the Regional District's remaining six electoral areas were commissioned through a consultant. These reports have four primary components:
- Identification of the existing industrial land base in the study area(s)
- Identification of the present and future industrial land use needs in the study area(s)
- Evaluation of the adequacy of the existing and potential industrial land base to meet future demand
- Creation of a detailed parcel-based inventory of industrial lands that are – or may be in the future – potentially suitable for industrial development.
Each of the reports deals with these elements for one specific Electoral Area.
