Urban planning

1 History

In the Neolithic period, agriculture and other techniques
facilitated larger populations than the very small communities of the Paleolithic, which probably led to the
stronger, more coercive governments emerging at that
time. The pre-Classical and Classical periods saw a number of cities laid out according to fixed plans, though
many tended to develop organically. Designed cities were
characteristic of the Minoan, Mesopotamian, Harrapan,
and Egyptian civilizations of the third millennium BC
(see Urban planning in ancient Egypt). The first recorded
description of urban planning is described in the Epic
of Gilgamesh: “Go up on to the wall of Uruk and walk
around. Inspect the foundation platform and scrutinize
the brickwork. Testify that its bricks are baked bricks,
And that the Seven Counsellors must have laid its foundations. One square mile is city, one square mile is orchards, one square mile is claypits, as well as the open
ground of Ishtar's temple.Three square miles and the
open ground comprise Uruk. Look for the copper tabletbox, Undo its bronze lock, Open the door to its secret,
Lift out the lapis lazuli tablet and read.” [4]

Urban planning designs settlements, from the smallest towns to
the largest cities. Shown here is Hong Kong from Western District
overlooking Kowloon, across Victoria Harbour.

Urban planning (urban, merged urban regions, regional,
city, and town planning) is a technical and political process concerned with the use of land and design of the urban environment, including air and water and infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas such as transportation and distribution networks.
Urban planning guides and ensures the orderly development of settlements and satellite communities which
commute into and out of urban areas or share resources
with it. It concerns itself with research and analysis,
strategic thinking, architecture, urban design, public consultation, policy recommendations, implementation and
management.[1]

Distinct characteristics of urban planning from remains
of the cities of Harappa, Lothal, and Mohenjo-daro in
the Indus Valley Civilization (in modern-day northwestern India and Pakistan) lead archeologists to conclude that
they are the earliest examples of deliberately planned and
managed cities.[5][6] The streets of many of these early
cities were paved and laid out at right angles in a grid pattern, with a hierarchy of streets from major boulevards to
residential alleys. Archaeological evidence suggests that
many Harrapan houses were laid out to protect from noise
and enhance residential privacy; many also had their own
water wells, probably for both sanitary and ritual purposes. These ancient cities were unique in that they often
had drainage systems, seemingly tied to a well-developed
ideal of urban sanitation.[5]

A plan can take a variety of forms including strategic
plans, comprehensive plans, neighborhood plans, regulatory and incentive strategies, or historic preservation
plans. Planners are often also responsible for enforcing
the chosen policies.
The modern origins of urban planning lie in the movement for urban reform that arose as a reaction against the
disorder of the industrial city in the mid-19th century.
Urban planning can include urban renewal, by adapting
urban planning methods to existing cities suffering from
decline. Alternatively, it can concern the massive challenges associated with urban growth, particularly in the
Global South.[2]

Many Central American civilizations also planned their
cities, including sewage systems and running water. In

nience. The basic plan consisted of a central forum with
city services, surrounded by a compact, rectilinear grid
of streets, and wrapped in a wall for defense. To reduce travel times, two diagonal streets crossed the square
grid, passing through the central square. A river usually
flowed through the city, providing water, transport, and
sewage disposal.[14] Hundreds of towns and cities were
built by the Romans throughout their empire. Many European towns, such as Turin, preserve the remains of
these schemes, which show the very logical way the Romans designed their cities. They would lay out the streets
at right angles, in the form of a square grid. All roads
were equal in width and length, except for two, which
were slightly wider than the others. One of these ran east–

However. the goal of the rational model is to make would allow planning organizations to work on[105] Lane functional and more big-picture oriented levels. has clear implications for public involvement in planning By the late 1960s and early 1970s. more reactive rather than proactive way. Propoexplains though.2 Synoptic planning describes planning as “muddling through” and thought that practical planning required decisions to be made inAfter.[101] Public participation was first introduced into this model and it was generally integrated into the system process described above. community-level planning processes. developed by Etzioni. or. It is often considered as part of community development.

the kinds of knowledge that planners choose to employ and how the planning context is set.[101] 3. it was realized that the current models were not necessarily sufficient.7 Advocacy planning Advocacy planning is another radical departure from past theoretical models.[101] Transactive planning focuses on interpersonal dialogue that develops ideas. Prior to 1950. participation is actually fundamental to the planning process happening. Lane (2005) notes that it is most useful to think of these model as emerging from a social transformation planning tradition as opposed to a social guidance one. Like the advocacy model. participation was a central goal. participation plays a central role under this model. One of the central goals is mutual learning where the planner gets more information on the community and citizens become more educated about planning issues. advocacy. the public was encouraged to take on an active role in the policy setting process. Again. public participation is a central tenet of this model. It concerns itself with ensuring that all people are equally represented in the planning process by advocating for the interests of the underprivileged and seeking social change. which will be turned into action. while the planner took on the role of a distributor of information and a feedback source. The idea is that each individual will approach a conversation with his or her own subjective experience in mind and that from that conservation shared goals and possibilities will emerge. and are. A plurality of public interests is assumed. In fact.18 4 before. As had happened before. .[101] 3.6 Transactive planning Transactive planning was a radical break from previous models. public participation is largely influenced by how planning is defined.8 PROCESS process. Urban Planning was seldom considered a unique profession.[101] Though some might argue that is too difficult to involve the public through transactive. and the role of planner is essentially the one as a facilitator who either advocates directly for underrepresented groups directly or encourages them to become part of the process. so the emphasis is more bottom-up in nature than it is top-down. it is important to note that transportation is perhaps unique among planning fields in that its systems depend on the interaction of a number of individuals and organizations.[107][108] Again.[101] 3. how planning problems are defined. bargaining and communicative models because transportation is some ways more technical than other fields.[101] Looking at each of these models it becomes clear that participation is not only shaped by the public in a given area or by the attitude of the planning organization or planners that work for it.[106] 3. It focuses on using communication to help different interests in the process understand each other.[110] 4 Process Bargaining model The bargaining model views planning as the result of give and take on the part of a number of interests who are all involved in the process.9 Communicative approach The communicative approach to planning is perhaps the most difficult to explain. Instead of considering public participation as method that would be used in addition to the normal training planning process. The model seeks to include as a broad range of voice to enhance the debate and negotiation that is supposed to form the core of actual plan making. but it asserts that each group or individual in our unequal society has a chance to influence planning decisions. and the planner plays a more minor role. Without the involvement of concerned interests there is no planning. This model takes the perspective that there are large inequalities in the political system and in the bargaining process between groups that result in large numbers of people unorganized and unrepresented in the process. this model recognizes that there are inherent inequalities in society. of course. a number of different models emerged. In this model.[111] There were. Decisions are made first and foremost by the public. For the first time.[109] The most interesting part of this theory of planning is that makes public participation the central dynamic in the decision-making Blight may sometimes cause communities to consider redeveloping and urban planning. It argues that this bargaining is the best way to conduct planning within the bounds of legal and political institutions. even if they are unable to dominate it or win the benefits that they are seeking.

[113] The term advocacy planning was coined by Paul Davidoff in his influential 1965 paper. for example by Salingaros see the city as an adaptive system that grows according to process similar to those of plants.[119][120] Carrier-Infill urban design is differentiated from complete urban design. They say that urban planning should thus take its cues from such natural processes. In their paper “Taking Our Bearings: Mapping a Relationship among Planning Practice. 5 See also and Education. capable of integrating the work of other disciplines into a coherent plan for whole cities or parts of cities.[117] Such theories also advocate participation by inhabitants in the design of the urban environment.” the authors demonstrate the importance of educating planners beyond the rational plan• Circles of Sustainability ning model in which planners make supposedly valueneutral recommendations based on science and reason. waterways.
