Abstract

While numerous literature discuss urban land use planning theory, it is still unclear the framework that should drive planning practice signifying the need for further interrogation of the subject. This work analyses evolution and development of planning from the human action theory standpoint, drawing on experiences from the UK, Japan and sub-Saharan Africa in the extant literature. It is established that evolution of planning and its practice over time, although uneven across these areas, are rooted in human action. To ensure that planning contributes to addressing the sustainable development challenges confronting the world today, there is a need for planning design regimes and their practice to include human action-incentives.
