Urban planning is a comprehensive town development plan that enables the most rational use of various activities such as politics, economy, and culture in cities, and maintains a good living environment that supports these activities. . According to the City Planning Act, the basic philosophy of the city is that the ultimate goal of city planning is to ensure healthy and cultural urban life and functional urban activities. It clearly states that rational land use should be achieved by imposing appropriate restrictions without entrusting the use to individual arbitrarily.
In this case, due to disorderly urbanization, mutual adjustments will be made so that the agricultural and forestry areas where agricultural investment was made will not be eaten by silkworms or agricultural investment will be made in the area maintained as an urban area. Since it is necessary to plan the rational use of the city, the City Planning Act also stipulates that "healthy harmony with agriculture, forestry and fisheries" should be achieved.
