In this Chapter, we have seen how the employment geography of the GGH shifted dramatically between 2006 and 2016, to an even stronger tendency toward geographic concentration than we found for 2001 to 2011 in Planning for Prosperity. We've identified key industry Archetypes, and shown that each has a unique spatial pattern in the GGH.
This analysis can be used by municipalities to understand the changing economic landscape within their own jurisdictions, contributing to land needs assessments, employment strategies, and Municipal Comprehensive Reviews. For example, any given municipality will contain a particular mix of Archetypes. The relevant profiles can be used to understand the associated spatial patterns, urban environment characteristics, drivers, and growth or loss potential for each of these to help inform more nuanced planning policy and plans.
