LESSONS FROM THE BRITISH FOR STATE PLANNING STATUTORY REFORM. IN: MODERNIZING STATE PLANNING STATUTES: THE GROWING SMART WORKING PAPERS, VOLUME ONE

British planning demonstrates that a centralized planning system, administered with flexibility at the local level, can operate in a market-driven economy. Many British planning principles and techniques, when modified and applied at the state level in the United States, would greatly advance the cause of rational and efficient land-use planning. Furthermore, many aspects of British planning would benefit developers. This paper begins with an overview of British planning, which is followed by a summary of the primary differences between planning in Great Britain and the United States. The paper concludes with elements of British planning that should be considered for incorporation in a model planning enabling statute.
