Abstract: The overall mission of the Planning Authority is set out successfully in the Authority's Mission Statement as: "to provide a planning service to improve the quality of life through achieving the best balance between improving social well-being, improving economic well-being and protecting the environment".

The Enforcement Unit is always improving and it is important to continue improving so that it will succeed in providing a planning service to improve the quality of life. [...]
