Urban planning and land use

Plans under presentation

Plans are prepared in consultation with those whose conditions or interests they affect. Municipalities and county councils provide information on current planning projects on their websites, in newspapers and in planning reviews. Information on planning ensures that stakeholders have the opportunity to follow and influence planning. Stakeholders are those whose circumstances or interests may be significantly affected by the plan.
