Spatial planning: The Danish Planning Act
Spatial planning aims to create and maintain the qualities of urban areas and the countryside. The publication “Spatial planning in Denmark” provides a rapid overview of the stipulations and opportunities in Denmark’s Planning Act and gives examples of national, regional, municipal and local planning.
The publication describes the principles of the Planning Act related to decentralization of responsibility, framework management and involving the public in the planning process. The planning rules for coastal areas, retail trade and large projects that are likely to have significant effects on the environment are described briefly. Finally, the purpose of dividing Denmark’s territory into urban zones, summer cottage areas and rural zones and the rules for construction in rural zones are explained.
