What Is Planning?
The term “planning” may have many different connotations; but planning is about setting future foundations to improve quality of life and the development choices that impact the social, economic and physical development of a place.
To improve quality of life, we know that the planning process must deliver vision- an understanding of community wants and needs and providing tools to local leaders to attain them.
