Over the last decade British industry has gone through a timely and unprecedented period of restructuring; and urban regeneration has become a major political priority. This practical book assesses the changing nature of the industrial and business space property market which has developed out of the recession of the early 1980's. The book shows how business space development schemes can be initiated and implemented to revitalise urban areas. It covers the investment and development market, how schemes are financed and the different techniques used to appraise their financial viability, the layout and design characteristics of industrial, workshop and business space developments of all sizes, the influences of central government's economic, fiscal and planning policy, local authority initiatives to revitalise inner urban areas and the variety of methods to implement new development including partnerships and negotiated solutions.

Part 1 The investment and development market: the property market and the UK economy; property investment - the rationale; finance for property development. Part 2 Property components: business use space; traditional light industrial development; workspace and business centres. Part 3 Implementation at the local level: local economic and employment development; government iniatives and incentives; development control, planning gain and legal agreements; implementation by local authorities through land ownership; local authority powers and controls on capital expenditure. Part 4 Development appraisal: development appraisal, private sector land ownership; development appraisal, local authority land ownership.
