Abstract

Often in transitional periods between changing planning systems, “old” policy tools are abandoned and “innovative” tools are invented (in order to implement the new planning framework). In other cases, these “old” tools are adapting into tools used by the new planning regime, transforming their meaning, use and purpose. The design tool “Master Plan” is one of these cases. The study conducted is based on primary and secondary research. The report investigates the new meaning, use and purpose of “Master Plan” as a design tool. Also attempts the tool’s evaluation in order to assess its outcomes and therefore extract its importance. These issues will be examined through a thorough study of an urban regeneration project, in King’s Cross, in the edge of Central London. By way of the master plan’s process detailed analysis, the case study indicates that a “Master Plan” can encompass the new concepts of the changing planning system (such as the provision of flexibility and not strict limitation regarding developments process). Furthermore, through an evaluation, in terms of urban design and commercial performance, the case study shows how critical the “Master Plan” revealed for the success of urban regeneration. There is considerable emphasis on the role of the “Master Plan” as a tool to reconcile private and public interests.
