Integration of multifunctional goals into land use — the planning perspective

  • Burghard Meyer
  • Marek Degorski


The planning perspective of multifunctionality cannot be seen separately from other perspectives related to land use (as discussed in different chapters in this book). These perspectives (e.g. financial incentives, fiscal stimuli and planning related laws) sometimes have greater impacts on landscape functions than formalized planning systems on different levels. Nevertheless, without planning on different levels, the integration of multifunctional goals into land use cannot be successful.
