A GENERAL OVERVIEW AND EXPLANATION OF LAND-USE PLANNING
The central goal of land-use planning is the orderly development of land in a manner that promotes the interests of the public while accommodating the desires of individual developers. Planning involves the regulation and control of current development as well as the formation of plans, laws and policies designed to promote orderly, positive and beneficial long-term growth. Development control must take into account existing factors relating to environmental constraints; the interests of adjacent landowners; issues relating to traffic and mobility; infrastructure; et cetera. Planning, as the word itself suggests, requires that current and future development is regulated in order to promote the long-term interests of both present and future populations as they relate to the health of communities and the environment.
