What is Plan Conformance?

Plan Conformance includes the revision of local planning and regulatory documents to integrate the land use and resource management requirements of the Highlands Act so those documents will conform to the goals, requirements and provisions of the Regional Master Plan (RMP). Plan conformance is required by the Highlands Act throughout the Preservation Area and is voluntary in the Planning Area.
