Urban Planning
Urban Planning

Britain is one of the first countries to legislate on urban planning and has a relatively complete urban planning system. Many modern theories in it have an important influence on other countries and regions in the world. The Urban and Rural Planning Law promulgated in 1947 established a planning system with land use as the core, which was followed by many countries in the world after World War II. The 'Planning and Compulsory Acquisition Act' was promulgated in 2004, and important changes have taken place in the urban and rural planning system in the UK. Urban and rural planning has moved from 'land planning' to 'spatial planning'. In recent years, urban planning theory has continuously evolved. On the basis of physical space planning, factors such as economic, social, ecological environment, and public interest have been gradually added to transform into comprehensive planning.

 

The review of the experience of planning reform in the United Kingdom can give more thoughts to spatial planning, and has important reference significance for the development of my country's territorial and spatial planning in the new era.
