The Land Utilisation Survey of Britain (also Land Utilisation Survey of Great Britain) was a comprehensive survey of land use in Great Britain in the 1930s. The survey was the first such comprehensive survey in Britain since the Domesday Book survey. The survey was the first such comprehensive survey in Britain since the Domesday Book survey in the 11th Century. A Second Land Use Survey was carried out in the 1960s. Subsequent work has mainly been based on satellite imagery, with sample field survey work for quality checking.
Town and country planning in the United Kingdom is the part of English land law which concerns land use planning. Its goal is to ensure sustainable economic development and a better environment. Each country of the United Kingdom has its own planning system that is responsible for town and country planning devolved to the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly.
Many city governments established planning departments during the first third of the 20th century. The colonial powers transported European concepts of city planning to the cities of the developing world. The year 1909 was a milestone in the establishment of urban planning as a modern governmental function: it saw the passage of Britain’s first town-planning act and, in the United States, the first national conference on city planning, the publication of Burnham’s plan for Chicago, and the appointment of Chicago’s Plan Commission (the first recognized planning agency in the. United States, however, was created in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1907).
Urban areas contain half of the world’s population (UNFPA 2011a) and more than a third of world urban population live .
Urban areas contain half of the world’s population (UNFPA 2011a) and more than a third of world urban population live in large cities (UNFPA 2011b, United Nations 2011a, Worldwatch Institute 2007). This makes cities places of primary concern to administrators because they harbour a large proportion of non-agricultural specialists. They generate a larger proportion of national economic activity and provide greater employment opportunities and services due to their diversified economic base (Oyesiku 2010). This makes cities vehicles of national development and growth. The world’s population currently living in cities has continued to grow, as more people are attracted to cities.
Land use information in planning plays two distinct types of role in this process: in aiding the development . Because the amount of change in urban land use over, say, a decade, is so small relative to the area of a territory – in England it amounts to less than two per cent.
Land use information in planning plays two distinct types of role in this process: in aiding the development of policy rules and in forming the basis on which policy is applied to individual cases. GIS has a clear potential to support both roles. This chapter concentrates on how GIS has been used to generate information about land use for policy purposes, rather than on the use of systems to control development directly. 953.

Protection of environment is a major issue in Great Britain. Nuclear waste from nuclear plants is discharged into the Irish Sea, making it one of the most radioactive seas in the world. Great Britain maintains careful checks on use of dangerous chemicals and collects information about new ones. Acid rains that kill enormous amounts of fish in Great Britain are also in the centre of attention. There also have been numerous leaks of radioactive matter to the atmosphere. Water pollution from shipping and oil platforms, mostly in the North Atlantic, is great.

Ordnance Survey (OS) is a national mapping agency in the United Kingdom which covers the island of Great Britain. It is one of the world's largest producers of maps. Hall was enthusiastic about extending the survey of the north of England to a scale of 1:2,500. After 1879, land-use information was dropped from these area books; after the mid-1880s, the books themselves were dropped and acreages were printed instead on the maps. After 1854, the six-inch maps and their revisions were based on the "twenty-five inch" maps and theirs. The six-inch sheets covered an area of six by four miles.
The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) . The interviews assisted with the understanding of the urban regeneration.
The Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) is the institutional anchor for the development and implementation of regeneration policies and programs. It views urban regeneration in terms of practical outputs that contribute to the economic and social restructuring of an urban area. process, the application of public private partnerships, and evaluation of results. Utilizing the potential of land and property in the process of economic development, various regeneration initiatives also did benefit from enhanced provision of social and educational services to local areas.
