Sometimes people (and planners) tend to make gross assumptions about the environment. I started thinking about it and here are a couple that came to mind:
"Urban sprawl equals unsustainable development”;
“Spatial mapping of decisions equals spatial planning”;
“Housing delivery (by numbers) equals poverty alleviation and provision of livelihoods (a house equals an asset, regardless of location and affordability)”;
I thought it would be a nice topic of discussion and would like to hear what other planners in the world think....?
