Présentation
Land-use policy and planning concerns collective decision-making by which a society decides where, within its territory, different socioeconomic activities should take place, and establishes provisions that control the nature of such actions due to environmental, cultural or historical reasons. These controls determine features such as plot areas, their land consumption, their intensity, their density or technical standards of infrastructures. Goals of land-use planning may include environmental conservation, minimization of transport costs, prevention of land-use conflicts, and a reduction in exposure to pollutants. Therefore, land-uses determine the diverse socioeconomic activities that occur in a specific area, the patterns of human behavior they produce, and their impact on the environment.
