Values-led Planning Approach in Spatial Development: A Methodology
Land 2021
Armands Auziņš, Uchendu Eugene Chigbu

The scope of land management, which includes spatial planning as an activity in the public domain, demands that a planning process, that is based on publicly or societally acceptable values, is a matter of necessity. This study, therefore, proposes a methodology (not a method) for values-led planning (VLP) approach in spatial development. The motivation of the study is to promote the embrace of assessed values in planning. The study draws from issues evoked in various topical studies on European comparative perspectives. By way of argumentation, the study makes three relevant contributions to the literature and the practice of spatial planning and development. First, it presents and discusses the essential elements required in the design of a methodology for VLP approach in spatial development. In doing this, it figuratively depicts VLP as a consequence of interactions between four key elements of spatial planning. Second, it proposes an actual methodology for action. And third, it discusses the applicability of the methodology. The proposed methodology would be useful for planners, including public authorities, land managers, and community leaders, who make socio-spatial decisions in land management and related activities.
