10.13 SEMMMS 2001 Final Report

“Finally, it is stressed once again that the strategy recommended by this study must be implemented in its entirety if its benefits are to be fully realised. It is not possible to pick and choose elements from the strategy because they are apparently the most popular, or are easy or quick or cheap to implement. The full benefits from the strategy will only be seen when it is implemented as a whole. If this should be proved not possible, the entire strategy will need to be reviewed. With the continuing commitment of the local authorities and the funding support of the Government, combined with the widespread support indicated for the strategy from the consultation programme, an environment has been established for the successful implementation of this study’s recommendations.”
