Abstract: The paper presents evidence on and suggests an explanation for spatial uniformity in the job generation process. In other components of change studies plant location is an important determinant of variations in the processes underlying employment change. This study for the West Yorkshire subregion whilst confirming the importance of plant size raises questions as to the importance of plant location in this process. This is explained with regard to the changing nature of the demand and supply of labour and land and to structural changes in manufacturing. Both factors may be working to fundamentally change the relationship between centre and periphery in terms of the ability to generate new jobs.
