Abstract

The phrase “Land take” refers to the loss of agriculture, natural and semi-natural land generated by human development. Recent research has focused on quantitative measurement of land take; however, not many scholars have so far analysed the quantitative relation between land take and its drivers, and still little explored is the connection between land-taking processes and spatial planning. By building upon previous studies, this paper explores drivers at the regional scale; the results are relevant for policy makers, as the key differences here highlighted relate to regional policies and planning measures in force.
