This book documents and analyses spatial planning in Ghana, providing a comprehensive and critical discussion of the evolving institutional and legal arrangements that have shaped and defined Ghana's spatial planning system for more than seven decades; the contemporary policy instruments and mechanisms for articulating and implementing policies and proposals at multiple scales; and the formally established procedures for development management. It covers important themes in contemporary spatial planning discourse, including the evolving meaning, scope and purpose of spatial planning globally; the scales of spatial planning (i.e. national, regional, sub-regional and local); multi-level integration within spatial planning; public participation; the interface between urbanization, sustainable growth management and spatial planning; spatial planning and housing development; integrated spatial development and transportation planning; and spatial planning and the urban informal economy. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students, and academic researchers and practitioners/policy-makers in the multidisciplinary field of spatial planning, it appeals to readers seeking an international perspective on spatial planning systems and practices.

Ransford A. Acheampong Ph.D., M.Phil. Cambridge, UK; B.Sc. KNUST, Ghana is a Presidential Academic Fellow at the University of Manchester, UK. Before joining the University of Manchester, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Ireland. His research focuses on the nexus between spatial development and transportation. Themes covered in his research include comparative study of spatial planning systems; land use and transport interaction modelling; socio-spatial impacts of emerging mobility paradigms (e.g. shared-mobility and autonomous transport); and travel behaviours, focusing on the socio-ecological determinants of sustainable mobility options such as bicycling and walking in cities. He has contributed to planning-related projects for national and international organizations, including as a spatial planning consultant for the Town and Country Planning Department (TCPD) in Ghana and a research consultant for the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
