The relevant documents (project and development plan, project-related development plan, justification of the development plan and summary statement on the manner in which the environmental concerns and the results of the public and public authority participation have been taken into account in the development plan and on the reasons for which the plan was selected after consideration of the other planning options considered) may be inspected by anyone.
