IMPLEMENTING THE CONSISTENCY DOCTRINE. IN: MODERNIZING STATE PLANNING STATUTES: THE GROWING SMART WORKING PAPERS, VOLUME ONE

The consistency doctrine, one of the most powerful and controversial advances in the art of planning and regulating land uses since the adoption of zoning, must be tuned to fit an increasingly complex environment of local planning intermixed with state, regional, and federal regulatory programs. This working paper examines ways to make the consistency doctrine a working, effective part of any state's planning and growth management system. While the paper does not address the substantive issues of state plans or regional plans, it addresses the form that those plans should take if they are to be implemented through local plans and development regulations. The paper also addresses how the consistency doctrine should be applied within state planning programs for Developments of Regional Impact or Areas of Critical State Concern, and between those programs and local planning and regulatory programs.
