I recently got an email requesting the addition of a rural planning forum. Others have made the request through the years, so I thought I'd start a thread.
The unofficial policy about adding new forums is that it's better to have fewer busy forums than many less active forums, and that new forums should be added mainly when the topic doesn't really fit in any of the other forums, and/or the forum will get a enough traffic or attract enough new users to justify its existence. The most recently added forums were the Planning in Australia, Planning in the UK and Environmental Planning forums.
I've been reluctant to add a rural planning thread because it seems like many rural-specific planning topics could fit in other forums, Can you think of any topics specific to rural planning that don't fit neatly into the other forums? Would they be common enough to justify a separate forum?
