3. Development Objectives

3.1 To guide the delivery of the vision for CNFE, one overarching objective and eight clearly defined and demonstrable spatial objectives have been formulated which articulate the key development principles (see Chapter 7). The objectives have been drawn from an understanding of the particular issues within CNFE and the results of early evidence gathering and consultation with key stakeholders. The objectives are set out below.
