The land use planning process of new towns is unique in that all land use activities are simultaneously being distributed at the planning stage. This presents a major planning problem to the land use planner and, consequently, a need for a planning paradigm from which an optimal land use allocation plan can be generated. Upon presenting the major aspects of the land use planning problem of new towns the paper outlines a general planning model which is capable of producing optimal land use plans and then proceeds to examine the model's main components and the essence of its operation.
