Key Features of Regional Planning
Regional planning has developed along pragmatic lines with relatively little attention to formal theory. It may be premature to expect a fully developed theory in a young and highly disparate field, but it does seem possible to generalize about the common features of regional planning as it has evolved in various countries around the world. Such generalization is not only suggestive of areas for further study but offers the possibility of illuminating a path through the confusing reality with which we must deal. The emphasis here is on problems of broad-scale regional planning, including both urban and rural activities, in developing situations.
