The cases cover varying themes and conflicts between interests and provides an overview of different considerations that are at stake when planning and balancing land use. Through a mapping of different strategies and policy instruments affecting land use planning, PlanMiljø have compiled recommendations on how to improve the process of land use planning to avoid conflicts between stakeholders.
