Land management

Spatial development glossary, European Conference of Ministers responsible for Spatial/Regional Planning (CEMAT), Territory and landscape, No 2, published by Council of Europe Publishing in 2007, states: ‘Land management can be defined as the process of managing the use and development of land resources in a sustainable way.

It goes on to state: ‘As land resources are used for a variety of purposes which interact and may compete with one another, all land uses should be planned and managed in an integrated manner. Land management is closely related to land-use planning and physical planning. Land management may also comprise the activity of land assembly (purchase of land by public authorities to facilitate future land uses such as the protection of natural areas or the development of land for specific purposes, such as housing or infrastructure).’
