Abstract

A starting point of this paper is the notion of a sustainable city, a dominant concept of global development, which assumes the harmonization of societies and activities, in urban planning. Accordingly, urban planning is playing an important role in achieving a sustainable city. The main purpose of this paper is to contribute to the discussion about the “Sustainable city” and concentrates on the theme “planning, development and management”. This paper discusses the development of urban societies, through history and states their implications, on urban planning activities.
