No new business sites yet

Section 5.3 - In light of COVID-19, we will unfortunately see many small businesses not recover.  By pressing ahead with these sites we run the very big risk of the sites being left empty for significant amount of time.  Best option is not to develop these sites until such time that existing business units have been occupied for at least 3-6 months.  Then we'll know if we still have a need for these new sites

Proposed Change
