Land Use Planning Principles GENERAL LAND USE Separate incompatible uses, such as industrial from residential, by locating them in different parts of the community or buffering them from each other.

Consider potential “nuisances,” such as noises, light, smell, high volume roadways and industrial uses. One of the most important land use planning principles is making transitions gradual. This is why you should not place your heaviest industry by your largest lot single-family detached homes.

Land use is when an area is used for a specific purpose to meet the wants and needs of people. The land may be used as it naturally exists, like using a lake for swimming and boating.

Planning occurs at many levels, from day-to-day decisions made by individuals and families, to complex decisions made by businesses and governments. This paper focuses on community land use and transport planning, but most principles described apply to any planning activity.

Overall definition and context of the topic Land is a finite and essential natural resource. It is subject to competing pressures from e.g. urbanization, infrastructure, increased food, feed, fiber and fuel production while at the same time land is expected to continue providing key ecosystem services.

While professionals and scholars have begun to incorporate aspects of this new field into their work, there remains a need for a summary of key principles and how they might be applied in design and. A land ethic is a philosophy or theoretical framework about how, ethically, humans should regard the land.

The term was coined by Aldo Leopold (–) in his A Sand County Almanac (), a classic text of the environmental movement. There he argues that there is a critical need for a "new ethic," an "ethic dealing with human's relation to land and to the animals and plants.

principles and understanding their implications for land-use and land-management decisions are essential steps on the path toward ecologically based land use.

Key ecological principles deal with time, species, place, disturbance, and the landscape. While they are presented as separate entities, the principles interact in many ways.
