Environment and planning, or possible approaches to the environment in physical planning

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The natural environment and its place in physical planning can be approached in a variety of ways. In an extreme case, the environment can be treated as the subject matter of a plan. Alternatively, it can be one of the elements constituting the subject of planning. It can be treated as material defining the spatial framework of development, or as its factor and limitation. The way of approach depends primarily on how we understand the nature-man relationship, and what model of the operation and development of nature we adopt. Two such models can be considered : of the autonomous development of nature, and of controlled nature-man interactions. In the latter, two types of interaction are involved : of the spatial integration or spatial separation of nature and man. These assumptions can underlie various approaches to the environment ; their elucidation is the subject matter of the present paper. - (BJ)
