dc.description.abstractSince 1987, when the Brundtland Commission published its famous report, Our Common Future, discussions of urban and regional planning have tended to be strongly influenced by notions of 'sustainable development. ' This certainly is a welcome occurrence, but it is often forgotten that there is a far older tradition of visionary regional planning that anticipated many of the ideas of 'sustainable development.' While there is insufficient space here to treat their ideas in depth, a brief summary is offered in chronological order. In order to make the discussion more concrete, certain of these ideas are applied to the current situation in the Greater Vancouver region.en
