Property rights, planning, and markets : managing spontaneous cities by Christopher J Webster( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
"Five kinds of urban order are examined, arising as co-operating individuals seek to reduce the costs of transacting with each other. These are organisational order (combinations of property rights), institutional order (rules and sanctions), proprietary order (fragmentation of property rights), spatial order and public domain order. Property Rights, Planning and Markets also offers an institutional interpretation of urban planning and management that challenges both the view that planning inevitably conflicts with freedom of contract and the view that its function is a means of correcting market failures."--BOOK JACKET

8 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
The major difficulties facing professionals in real estate development in Hong Kong involve the use and development intensity of land, the complicated procedures and the mass of building laws.

It provides an account of the concept of the use and change in use of land; followed by an outline of the procedures for lease modifications and waivers, planning applications, reviews and appeals, and building applications and appeals.

Zoning and property rights : a Hong Kong case study by Lawrence Wai-chung Lai( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 116 libraries worldwide
The author combines the unique multidisciplinary backgrounds of an academic, a political scientist, a lawyer and an urban planner to provide the reader with a novel and challenging discussion about the economic nature of land use zoning. Besides establishing a coherent framework for zoning based on the Coasian property rights paradigm, the book offers the reader several up-to-date case studies, including the government role in assigning exclusive property rights via marine fish culture zoning in Hong Kong. The observations provided in the case studies make a valuable contribution to the reader's knowledge of both the effects of zoning systems and the value of the property rights framework for analysis. They also have important implications for future town planning exercises
The ideas of Ronald H. Coase : market failure and planning by contract for sustainable development by Lawrence Wai-chung Lai( Book )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 106 libraries worldwide
This book is the first work dedicated to the key ideas of Nobel Laureate Ronald Coase on pollution and public goods with sustainable development in mind from the perspective of an economist-town planner. The seminal contributions of Ronald Coase, foretold in the form of the Coase Theorem by another Nobel laureate, George Stigler, have been much analyzed and often misinterpreted by friends and foes alike. In this book, Lawrence Lai attempts to revisit Coase's seminal works and bring to the fore their importance in economic and urban planning

Town planning in Hong Kong : a review of planning appeal decisions by Lawrence Wai-chung Lai( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
This book is written for professionals and practitioners who are interested in town planning, such as policymakers who deal with planning and development matters, lawyer, developers, proprietors, town planners, environmental protection officers and transport officers in the government and private practice, members of the Town Planning Board and Town Planning Appeal Board, estate and building surveyors, architects, authorized persons and academics whose research area is in planning and decision-making of statutory bodies, particularly those who are interested in "rent-seeking, " "economic analysis of law" and "property rights." There has been in recent years rapid expansion and development in the Town Planning Ordinance, which was first passed in 1939, and the ensuing case law. However, there have been few systematic publications on statutory planning in Hong Kong from the perspective of law, planning or valuation. Law schools in Hong Kong have only just begun to develop a relevant curriculum, and lawyers and professionals specialized in planning law are in great demand. Such demand is generated by the fact that statutory planning has become increasingly litigious due to its successive amendments and the sustained rise in economic and environmental values of land. Planning and surveying schools have also been slow in integrating their specialisms in one curriculum. While planners tend to ignore the economic or valuation implications of their practice, educators in surveying do not seem to understand thoroughly the importance of town plans or planning constraints: they are key factors affecting land values
