This is the first book to incorporate land use planning with sustainability. The authors offer a perspective that opens a range of possibilities for changing current methods. They use sustainability as a framework and present the underlying concepts of sustainable land-use planning. With Land-Use Planning for Sustainable Development the reader will discover an array of ideas for modifying conventional panning and regulation of the development of land. The authors tackle the difficult dilemma of creating a consensus among people that taps the powers of mind, intuition, and experience in developing their own sustainable community. Once created the communities will have a defined course of action and a vision that will keep the community on a course towards a sustainable future.
