Dutch land-use planning is - deservedly - widely known and respected throughout the planning world, This is the first comprehensive book in English on that subject written by an 'insider'. 'Dutch land-use planning' includes not only the formal structures and rules but also the informal daily practices. Much attention is given to the frictions between the different planning agencies in the country and to the tensions betweeen principles and pragmatism. After reading this book, the planner will be better able to understand how the Dutch realise those projects which have made them world famous.
