Abstract

Policy planning is concerned with stating goals, classifying options, and broad allocation of land-use priorities. Planning processes in the UK, for example, developed in the post-war era when agriculture and forestry were automatically assumed to enhance the countryside. The main thrust of planning decisions has therefore been concerned with encouraging urban development and limiting proliferation into the rural setting. As a consequence planning policy is concerned as much with improving or maintaining the urban environment in a physical condition to encourage industrial development and provide residential sites with a comprehensive array of community and social facilities, as it is with assessing the impact of individual projects on its immediate site.
