Danish Planning and Consensus Politics

  • Carl-Johan Skovsgaard


Recent developments in Danish urban policy at the national level have aimed at integrating and co-ordinating land-use planning with other urban policies, and these attempts will be the main focus of this chapter. Other policies such as housing, urban transport, inner-city revival and environmental questions will be touched on only as they relate to land-use policies.
