How can we be sure that Herefordshire develops in a way that meets the needs of this generation while making sure that future generations will be able to meet their needs?

One way is to monitor how the county is doing in terms of the environment, society and the economy all together.

If progress starts to slip behind in one area, we as a county, can work together to bring development back on track.

To do that we need something to guide us, to point us in the right direction: a route map.

In order to decide which areas we should monitor we undertook a long period of consultation across the county with community groups, businesses and individuals.
