Landscape in the Planning Systems in Europe

  • Luigi La RicciaEmail author
Part of the The Urban Book Series book series (UBS)


The European Landscape Convention has inspired innovations in the legislative framework, policies, plans and projects for landscape in many countries, integrated with landscape urban planning traditions, reinforcing the historical-cultural roots relevant for protection, planning and management of landscapes. In this chapter are selected some urban planning tools at local scale in Europe, which included landscape as a fundamental aspect of the overall planning process, intervening both in the analysis phase and the preliminary diagnosis, as well as in the definition of planning objectives and strategies. This selection incorporates local planning tools, which are aimed at different scales, in France, Germany, United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
