It will also set out guiding policies and objectives for the development of the County in terms of physical growth and renewal, economic, social and cultural activity, and environmental protection and enhancement. The County Plan must take account of various national and regional strategies and guidelines. The Plan reflects consultation with the general public and other interested bodies.
