Planning for rural diversification


, : Planning for rural diversification. Planning for rural diversification: ix + 218 pp.

Thirty two local authority (in England and Wales) case studies, were complemented by detailed analyses of development control criteria for seven districts and two National Parks, and information on the outcomes of appeals are used to establish: the extent to which local planning authorities are implementing Planning Policy Guidance note 7 (PPG 7) policies for diversification of the rural economy in their development plans and development control decisions; the reasons the policies are not being fully implemented insofar as this is the case; and to recommend steps to overcome any further obstacles to complete implementation. Brief case histories of nearly 100 individual diversification schemes, selected to represent both good practice, and examples where implementation had been less successful, were prepared. It is concluded that plans in the more accessible areas, those closer to the main urban areas, were more advanced than those in the more remote rural areas. The assessment concluded that there were a number of actions which would make the implementation of PPG 7 more effective and that these would best be promoted through the preparation of a Good Practice Guide incorporating: development plans demonstrating the need for integration of topics; economic development strategies as a link between rural diversification programmes and development plans; the positive value of policies for sport and tourism and the sustainable use of transport in rural areas; and that in appropriate circumstances the economic re-use of all rural buildings should be encouraged. Overall, the Good Practice Guide should emphasize that diversification relates to the whole rural economy, and is not limited to farm diversification.

Recently, mRNA expression of both IL-12p35 and EBI3 was clearly shown in stimulated human T e...
