Planning and the Public Interest: An Editorial Introduction
AbstractThis special issue of Geography Research Forum thus aims at exploring aspects of representing the public interest in plans, planning laws and by planning agencies. Since we cannot define the public interest in a straightforward algorithm, our aim is to look at the inevitable dilemmas associated with seeking out the public interest and integrating it into spatial plans, laws and administrations.
