Land Use Control Strategies Around Urban Growth Boundaries in Korea

In IRES Vol.4 No.2
Peer-reviewed Article

This paper proposes a comprehensive land-use management program aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of land management within urban growth areas and at the same time managing areas around the outside of urban growth boundaries through controlled development, thereby facilitating both development and conservation in areas around urban centers. This paper also suggests approaching urban development projects from a broad regional planning perspective, taking into account the availability of public facilities and services; managing land through phased development programs; and obliging developers to contribute partial or full costs of meeting additional need for public facilities and services. Emphasis is also placed upon the necessity of reaching a social consensus regarding limiting land ownership in order to ensure the success of such urban growth management programs.
