An Foras Forbartha
€ 7.95 

Carried out by An Foras Forbartha, this study was conducted to develop linkages between local, regional, and national planning, particularly investigating how regional plans can be suitable as a framework for local plans; to establish to what extent proposals in the regional plan are consistent with national plans and other regional plans; to identify the more significant and implementable recommendations in the regional plans; to assess the suitability of the approach and methodologies adopted in relation to the objectives in the regional plan; and to compile a national strategy on the basis of the regional plans.
