      Dear Wideke,

      Sorry for the delay in answering.

      I had a look at the Planned Land Use data model, the ATS and the implementation rules (IR) and yes, I agree. I can just find a written description implying this requirement. My experience from regional land use plans in Finland is that zoning element polygons are not supposed to overlap within a plan, but they may do so because of digitalisation errors and due to the fact that some reservations (zoning elements) are digitised as polygons and other as points or lines. I understand it so, that the intention is that zoning elements shouldn't overlap. However, I'd like to interpret it in such a way that that it will not be a requirement of INSPIRE to fix a possible overlap of zoning elements. However, this is just my personal interpretation.

      In Finland most land use reservations (plan markings) that clearly overlap with the zoning elements,  can be considered as supplementary regulations, at least for regional land use plans. One challenge is that INSPIRE only allows zoning elements to be of type MultiGeometry (polygons), while in Finland they may also be points (eg. big complexes for shopping, major industries) or lines (eg. roads) due to scale, which means that we have to map them to supplementary regulation instead.

      Hth,

      Lena
