This track aims to provide a platform for sharing research and experiences on issues related to land development, regulations, and implementation. Submissionsmay address any of the following, or related, topics:
• How and where land is developed, the impacts of national, state and local regulations upon the use of land, and the role of different actors in the land development process.
• Land use instruments, e.g., local statutory plans, zoning, building permits, "planning gain", regulation of open space and natural resources, and historic-building regulation.
• Land for public services, land readjustment, taxation of land values, transfer of development rights.
The contributions may look at the general theory of planning and land use policy or investigate particular issues, ranging from jurisdiction-level studies, to international comparisons and focusing on a particular city, region, country or cross-nationally. They could employ a variety of methods, including, but not limited to, statistical analyses, detailed case studies, spatial analysis, and policy evaluations.
