Abstract

This comparative study of landscape planning, within three case-studies in England, Germany and the Netherlands, has the proposed outcomes to create a mutually understood model for ‘landscape planning’, a catalogue of key concepts on space, landscape and planning and a proposal for further European exchange of experiences on landscape plans. The comparison of contexts and contents of landscape plans has revealed significant parallels in the purposes for which landscape planning is used and their structure and context, but with significant diversity in the practical approaches, especially in objective setting and mapping. The European Landscape Convention appears to offer valuable tools for comparing landscape planning approaches in Europe.
