It has been more than a decade since the first edition of Van Wyk's was published. A number of developments have occurred since, and the publication of this second edition is a welcome addition to the field. This book is the fourth in the edited by Van der Walt. This second edition of Van Wyk's book includes a comprehensive discussion of the history of planning law, the constitutional implications for planning in the new South Africa, the role players in the planning system and detailed explanations of the various planning processes. This edition of the book has been revised to reflect the key changes in the field of planning law. The focus of the book is not only on the values of planning, but considers the development of new ideas and structures for planning in all three spheres of government. The effect of the new constitutional dispensation is also discussed, as well as landmark constitutional court decisions that were handed down in the field. The new Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Bill of 2012 is dealt with succinctly in the foreword of the book. The bill is discussed in further detail throughout the book.
