Land-use planning and demographic change: Mechanisms for designing rural landscapes and communities

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Demographic change in rural landscapes presents challenges for land use plan-ners. Planning policies and mechanisms have to adapt to changing land-use de-mands and community expectations. At the same time, planning schemes need to set standards which adhere to desired goals for designated areas. This chapter examines the role of land-use planning in managing demographic change in rural areas. International experience indicates that a broad range of planning mechan-isms is needed to manage landscapes with multiple functions and values. The de-sign and implementation of planning schemes and tools are highlighted as me-chanisms for achieving a balance of appropriate land uses while ensuring environmental and social sustainability in rural landscapes.
