Country: Colombia

This research aims to explain the Urban Planning Law in Colombia through the historical evolution of the legal institutions which regulated the land planning, the provision of basic public services, citizen safety and public health policies, and the property right; since colonial period until the 1989`s Urban Reform. Thus, it will be seen how the traditional definition of Urban Planning Law is reformulated with the sustainable development of cities and the Right to the City.

The study of the current Urban Planning Law and the solutions for the future problems must begin with a glance to the past.
