Commercial premises, such as shops and offices, medical centres, shop top housing and food and drink premises are all permissible uses in the zone.
Prohibited uses in the zone include Heavy Industries, Industrial retail outlets, and Sex services premises.
For the full list of permissible and prohibited uses please view the SSLEP2015.
