Korea Planning legislation finds its root in the Chosun Municipal Planning Decree enacted during the Japanese colonial period. Naturally, the substance of the Decree follows the basics of the Japanese Urban Planning Act, which has been heavily influenced by the German system, which is laws (Baugesetzbuch, Baunutzungsverordnung, Raumordnugsgesetz) and Bebauungsplan.
Modern day Korean Urban Planning Act, first enacted in 1962, has been amended several times reflecting societal changes. Nonetheless, the current system is not being regarded very functional in reconciling with the increasingly diversified demands as well as the rising concern for the ecology and environment. Need for improvements in the current urban planning legislation is strongly felt for better management of our cities towards the 21st century.
The present study intends to delineate the weakness of the current Urban Planning Act and to recommend directions for improvements. For that purpose, two most relevant foreign systems, namely, the Japanese and German City Planning legislations, have been thoroughly analysed from a comparative perspective to acquire ideas and policy implications for the batterment. Legislation of a society is, in fact, a reflection of the situations which that particular society is facing at that particular point in history. Therefore, understanding the historical background of the development of related legislation in the two countries was crucial in the process of our comparative study. So we thoroughly studied the related legislation.
Based on the numerous findings from the very scrutinizing comparative analysis, a few alternatives to amend the current Urban Planning Act have been suggested. Each alternatives, only with varying degrees, contains unclear improvement for the better management of our cities in the ever-changing world in the future.
