An entire paper could be written on the question: what do we mean by that ambiguous word planning, in any particular context? That question must be answered at the outset, because it is central to this paper: here planning will centrally mean land-use planning, that is, the codification and control of land use in new development and redevelopment according to plans that then form the basis of development control decisions; but it is impossible to confine discussion to this narrow definition, because land-use planning inevitably reflects wider urban policy concerns in the fields of economic development, social and community policy, housing policy, transportation planning, and environmental policy, to name only a few of the most important. Tracing these interrelationships will indeed prove the central theme of this discussion.
