Living environment and land use planning

A good living environment is essential for good quality of life. A functional and sound living environment allows different groups of people to lead their daily lives and fulfil their basic needs: living, the use of services, working, recreation, hobbies, but also rest and privacy. A good living environment is also ecologically sustainable. In this context, living environment refers to the residential, business and leisure time environments of people.

Zoning and land use planning create the preconditions for a good living environment and its development. The most important aim of land use planning is to reconcile different perspectives and goals.
