Land Use Planning Made Plain is a practical guide for planners, administrators, politicians, developers, property owners, and the general public on how to make and implement land use decisions. It seeks to develop a set of coherent planning principles by drawing out useful and generally applicable elements from various systems and approaches.

Hok-Lin Leung's focus is on planning at the city level, and he has organized the text according to the logical sequence of plan-making: justifications for making a land use plan, a plan for plan-making, planning goals, information, analysis, synthesis, and implementation. He addresses major debates in land planning today, including controversial material, and concludes with suggestions on the qualifications and qualities of a land use planner. By encouraging a shared understanding of the purpose, analytic skills and substantive considerations of plan-making - as well as the ways and means of plan-implementation - this book helps the planner to become more responsible and responsive to the many issues surrounding land use and its important role in addressing human needs.

Hok-Lin Leung is Director and Professor at the School of Urban and Regional Planning at Queen's University.

Editorial Reviews

'This completely revised edition of Land Use Planning Made Plain maintains Leung's avowed intent of producing a short uncluttered textbook covering current practice. Totally new sections on environment, transportation, infrastructure, GIS, the pros and cons of mixed uses, conflict resolution, public-private partnerships and new roles for the planner are delivered in Leung's crisp no-nonsense style. An excellent base text.' - Jeanne M. Wolfe, School of Urban Planning, McGill University
