Abstract

City planning involves a multitude of people in a variety of fields. Architects, engineers, and landscape experts are responsible for the shell; social and political experts for the administration and management of the people living within the shell. In a democracy both resources and good will are necessary to make city-planning schemes a reality. Variations depend on whether one is dealing with an old-established settlement, a transitional one, or an altogether new town. Redevelopment is slower and more difficult than original growth, for it involves criticism and obstructionism. Change nevertheless does occur, and there is increasing emphasis on the advantages of comprehensive development aimed at securing co-ordination of all factors involved in the creation of the new environment. Today city planners have begun to realize that unlimited growth may not always be synonymous with progress and that planning must have some patterned framework rather than being structured in terms of an undetermined and expanding objective.
