Environmental Planning in a Democratic Society
The first part of this paper discussed environmental planning in the abstract, whereas the second part of the paper describes environmental planning as it is being practiced in Denmark at the national, the regional and the local level.
The main hypothesis of the paper is that the good environment must satisfy man’s need for privacy as well as his need for social intercourse. The means and goals of planning in a given society show how this society defines the ideal balance between man’s individuality and man’s sociality. Successful environmental planning depends more on public participation than on ideological concepts.
