It is important to note that this list is not in priority order and does not mean necessarily that there will be new policies in the plan on the issues outlined. Further issues may be subsequently identified that are relevant to the NDP but not listed above.  These objectives for the Steering Group must not be confused with the vision/objectives of the plan (now agreed), even though they are in synergy.
