Land-use planning


This is the process by which government officials identify, evaluate, and decide on various land-use options, including the consideration of long-term economic, social, and environmental objectives, as well as the implications for various communities and interest groups, and the subsequent formulation and promulgation of plans that describe the permitted or acceptable uses.

Land-use planning is a critical component of long-term development. It entails research and mapping, as well as the study of economic, environmental, and hazard data, the development of alternative land-use decisions, and the creation of long-term plans at various geographical and administrative scales. By discouraging settlements and the development of essential installations in hazard-prone locations, land-use planning can help to mitigate disasters and reduce hazards, including consideration of service routes for transportation, power, water, sewage, and other critical services.
