Part 4 addresses network needs of the various categories of user, the characteristics of various types of network and, importantly, describes a planning process for balancing or prioritising the competing needs of different users based on a movement and place framework view of the road network.

It also describes the Network Operation Plan, which provides a framework for defining the intent of operation of the network, the priorities accorded to the various road user groups, network strategies, and the action plan that defines how the network is to be managed, operated and developed.

Major changes include: providing linkages to asset management and Safe Systems (Section 1.3), introducing the movement and place framework (Section 2), modification to the content and structure of Section 3, improved guidance on the Network Operational Plan (Section 4).
