Its mission is to develop a plan that is reasonable in its use for development, sustainable conservation and protection of the country. It also shall ensure that it works towards enhanced living standards for its citizens and grow the national economy.

Secondly, the Provincial and Capital City Land Use Plans covers the province with focus on the provincial capital. The plans are required to follow to the National Land Management Plan, and must reflect the environmental issues and matters relating to the protection of the land. This plan reflects the strategic planning 12 – 15 years ahead.
