Swiss Municipal Spatial Planning Survey

Survey of spatial planning instruments and the organization of land use planning in Swiss municipalities. In 2014, the survey was sent to all Swiss municipalities in letter and online form. The response rate of 69% (i.e. 1619 of 2352 municipalities at this time) results in a representative sample of Swiss municipalities. The survey contains questions on the implementation of 20 specific planning instruments and the decade they had been implemented at first, as well as details on the local planning regimes.
