A mixed use regeneration of the area will mean that many buildings will ultimately be replaced as many of the buildings are not suitable for conversion to other uses. However, in the short term meanwhile uses will be encouraged to utilise existing buildings and sites to avoid neglect and deterioration, retain activity in the area, and potentially provide cheap space for temporary uses.

Where sites are being retained for employment uses, and the existing buildings are capable of reuse and refurbishment, opportunities for re-use of buildings are encouraged.
