Definition: Industrial land, excluding land used for quarries, pits, mines and related facilities


Land on which mainly manufacturing activities (ISIC/Rev.3 divisions 15-37) are pursued, including all auxiliary grounds, such as private roads, parkings, storage grounds, office grounds, etc.  Included is land used by enterprises primarily engaged in construction work (ISIC/Rev.3 division 45).  However, actual construction sites are to be classified elsewhere.  Harbour areas and their storage facilities, although possibly extending to industrial premises, are excluded.  Also excluded is land used for quarries, mines, pits and related facilities (see there).
