    Land Use vs. Land-Use

    When is the term Land Use hyphenated to Land-Use?

    When should you use one or the other?

    Hummm....I don't think I've ever hyphenated the terms.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    If it is used as a double adjective the correct way to write it is: Land-Use Planning. I've never seen it written like that though.

    I have seen it hyphenated from time to time, but never have done so myself.

    Don't forget landuse. Another incorrect use of the term land use.
