Environmental nuisances created by industrial plants and workshops are recognized as one of the severest problems in the field of industrial zoning. In 1661, John Evelin wrote(1) indignantly that London was wrapped “in Clouds of Smoake and Sulphur, so full of Stink and Darkness”. He suggested that “all industries be moved to the leeward side of the city and that sweet-smelling trees be planted in the city itself”. We may regard him as the father of industrial zoning.
