Abstract

Masterplanning is having a major effect on development, especially in Britain, Europe and the USA, though the theoretical base is ill-defined and process has received little research attention. Of greater concern is that masterplanning is the antithesis of sustainable development. The paper explores the evolution of the masterplanner, critiques the way this product-driven device has changed and suggests sustainable alternatives. Giddings was the lead author.
