Abstract

The establishment of urban green spaces in Spanish planning EMERGES as AN OBLIGATION FOR urban PLANNERS and are considered as "endowments". The LAND ACT 1956 conceived the open spaces system as a "green area" and a minimum reservation module of 10% of the whole area was reserved for such spaces. Then there was the discussion of whether it was of public use and domain, or only of public use, etc.... but that is not relevant for the question I want to raise. The important thing is that green areas were considered within the same range of "things" as a cultural centre, a shop or a car park. In general, this conception of green spaces in urban areas has continued both IN doctrine and IN public opinion through the successive amendments to planning laws in almost all regions. However, it is not the only way to understand GREEN SPACES IN OUR CITIES. Anyway I prefer to talk about uncemented spaces rather than about green spaces as the term "green space" is usually associated with trees and grass. And the term "open spaces" includes urban areas such as squares or streets, which not in all cases can be considered as green areas or nature areas.
