Municipal Master Plan.

The Municipal Master Plan provides a comprehensive system of primary production, creating zones of high productivity, showing the road of food self-sufficiency  to local communities. The main aim is the sustainable and comprehensive development of municipality in order to increase its competitiveness and attractiveness, and to restore its social and economic functions. The areas unification within municipality’s limits which present different dynamics and development potential requires knowledge of basic indicators that are necessary elements for a balanced design. These indicators describe the type and size of production, the number of inhabitants of each place, and in particular those who are dealing with primary production sector, as well as the distance and the ability to connect with major distribution channels of the products. In fact, High Production Zones  create a channel of communication between different regions enabling most deprived areas to develop. Municipality’s dynamic areas will acquire their own strong and unique identity, based on the comparative advantages of their geographical location and their local human and material resources. They will become the basis of a rational development model which incorporates deep changes in production and consumption systems.

Orientation to "currency-commodity" farm products.

They are agricultural products or series of products which have a market value as derived agricultural products with the forms of “futures contract” and “forward contract”. They can be negotiated OTC (over-the-counter) or via the stock market. Such contracts are financial instruments created and used as a way of protecting companies and investors from sharp price fluctuations in the markets of agricultural products, foreign exchange, interest rates, metals, raw materials, etc.
The currency-commodity farm products advantages in three features as hereunder:
* Conversion of production in currency.
Daily liquidity in domestic and international sale centers.
* Potential influence of supply-demand curve.
In the event of competitive areas production collapse due to ecological disasters or other causes, High Production Zones convert to geo-economic "players" in domestic market by shaping the supply-demand curve with positive profitability.
* Support of municipality’s financial autonomy.
They can be converted into a key instrument of municipality’s financial policy without being influenced by the central authority (government).

Desired objectives of High Production Zones.

High Production Zones aim to the objectives as hereunder:
* Safe certified foods.
* Support of innovative cultivation methods (hydroponics etc.).
* Support of local plant varieties and animal breeds.
* Determination of rural land use as part of municipality’s wider area land planning with a view to the rational use of available land.
* Incorporation of locally constructed mechanical equipment in agricultural production with a view of supporting the local construction industry.
* Production costs compression with vertical integration units.

Structure of High Production Zones.

We publish the Greek model of High Production Zones with sample plant and animal species which are suitable for the climatic conditions of Greece. The present model can be the basis for future planning. The particular plant and animal species any future zone will contain, depend solely on zone’s wider region climatic conditions.
High Production Zones combine the activity sectors as hereunder:
* tomato, cucumber, eggplant, peppers, lettuce, zucchini, beans, potatoes, peas, radish, rocket, chicory, spinach, onion, lupine.
* almond, hazelnut, walnut, pistachio, lemon, kiwi, blueberry, strawberry.
* rabbit breeding (meat).
* turkey breeding (meat).
* chicken breeding (meat - eggs).
