Issues and Improvements of the Zoning System
Kim Sangjo Research Fellow
□ Demand for land deregulation is increasing as economic slowdown and low growth continue. Moreover, several issues are raised regarding the zoning system, including confusion over the grades of zones, lack of appropriate classification and differentiation of zones, and absence of flexibility in regulating the density of buildings and facilities.
□ The planning of the environment is faced with paradigm shifts such as: ① the need for comprehensive support for urban regeneration based on locations to rebuild existing urban areas, ② increasing demand for fusion and combination in urban spaces, ③ expansion of authorities of municipalities, and ④ demand for downzoning in urban planning following population decline.
□ Despite such changes, limitations on the zoning system caused by lack of operational flexibility seem to persist. Thus, it is critical to perform a fundamental review of and improve measures to regulate land use.
① (Clarification of Operational Principles) It is necessary to restore the fundamentals of zones that have deteriorated due to inconsistent deregulation, establish principles on deregulation, and specify the details of operation of the zoning system.
