Abstract Share this page

This paper presents a framework for the planning of urban landscape networks in an attempt to have nature areas integrated into traditional urban land‐use planning. The biophysical and socio‐economic benefits of such a network are discussed to provide justification for this incorporation. A framework is described, building upon ecological planning processes and incorporating theory and methodology from landscape ecology. The framework includes an assessment of natural and cultural resources, formulating the spatial structure of the network and examination of network components. Implementation strategies are discussed within the context of traditional urban land‐use planning practice.
