  The Metropolis is composed of a set of urban units, often to a certain degree independent municipalities.

Each municipality plays a role within the metropolitan context. They have to be collaborative and beneficiaries of the general Metropolitan Strategy, but they have to have their own Urban Strategy and tactics for urban socio-economic development and growth.

This sets up the basic rules for that local Strategy and Tactics. Even if there is no general Metropolitan Strategy (either because there is no Metropolitan Government, or because this one is not able to adopt a Metropolitan Strategy) the use of these principles to urban municipal planning will provide a compatibility among the strategies of the different municipalities (see 'Governance' file about Inter-administrative projects) and make the overall metropolitan growth compatible and consistent.

This is though not a substitute for the necessary Metropolitan Strategy. These principles are just Metropolitan Tactic principles. Unable to substitute the benefits of an overall Metropolitan Strategy
