Derry Area Plan 2011
Introduction: Other Policy Frameworks
In the development of objectives, proposals and policies for the Derry Area Plan 2011 cognisance has also been taken of other relevant Governmental advice and broader policy. This includes, for example, broad guidance on Sustainability, e.g. Growing a Green Economy.
The Plan is also consistent with emerging policy such as the “Quality Initiative”, with an increased emphasis on environmental quality, design quality and sustainability.
“Transportation - The Way Forward” and the Northern Ireland Transport Policy Statement “Moving Forward” set out a new direction for transportation planning in Northern Ireland, the overall aims of which are to:
- reduce, where possible, the need for travel;
- encourage the use of alternatives to the private car;
- provide an efficient, safe and accessible transportation system which offers better choice and mobility for all its users.
