A vision for how we will create a healthy, more liveable, sustainable and low carbon city and respond to the climate and nature emergencies.
A set of objectives and targets for what the plan should deliver.
A set of 21 ‘Strategic Planning Policies’ that will help deliver the vision and objectives above.
