PLANNING LEGISLATION

 




































 

There are three elements to the planning process. There are government planning policies, there are specific policies for national projects, and there are the numerous Acts and secondary legidlation - Statutory Instruments - that modify the Acts. They are accessible on three webpages. This webpage provides access to the legislation. These two hyperlinks provide access to the policies.
