Hok-Lin Leung, B.Arch. (HongKong), M.C.P. (M.I.T.),
Dr Hok-Lin Leung is an architect-planner. He is the author of Economy, Land, Cities: Thoughts and Methods (2008), Towards a Subjective Approach to Policy Planning and Evaluation (1985), Land Use Planning Made Plain (1989, and 2nd edition, 1999), and City Images: An Internal View (1992). He also has articles and monographs on redistribution of land value increases, developer behaviour, urban design, housing for the elderly, residential density standards. He is currently working on environmental infrastructure planning, the transfer of planning know-hows to China, and cultural DNA of Western society, economy and politics.
He is the co-founder of the National Executive Forum on Public Property, at Queen's. Founded in 1998, the Forum's mission is "to promote the development and sharing of knowledge and techniques for managing public property, by providing a neutral venue and a collegial environment for networking by senior executives responsible for the management of public property at all levels of government across Canada." It now has 19 sponsors from all three levels of government across Canada.
He is the founder (2003) and Convenor of the Ambassadors' Forum. It is a forum for the 20 ambassadors and high commissioners to Canada from the Asia-Pacific. The purpose is to share ideas and perspectives of informed and thoughtful Canadians on issues that are of interest to the group, as well as to provide a venue for international dialogue. It meets every three months.
He is also the director of the China Projects Office at the School. The office has training, exchange and research projects funded variously by CIDA, Canadian Donner Foundation, and the Chinese Ministry of Land and Resources. Currently he does two lecture tours in China annually covering the following places: Development Research Center of the State Council, the Ministry of Land and Resources, the Ministry of Urban and Rural Construction and Housing, the China Executive Leadership Academy at Pudong, the China Academy of Urban Planning and Design, Tsinghua University, Peking University, the Central University of Finance and Economics, Fudan University and Tongji University.
His research areas include physical infrastructure (standards and financing), housing (especially for the elderly), urban design (environmental perception), history of planning ideas, policy evaluation methods, and comparative study methods. His current focus is on public policy analysis, Western cultural DNA and the development of Chinese planning theory.

2003 Land Use Planning Made Plain, Second Edition, translated and published in Chinese, China, Geological Press
Land Use Planning Made Plain is a practical guide for planners, administrators, politicians, developers, property owners, and the general public on how to make and implement land use decisions. It seeks to develop a set of coherent planning principles by drawing out useful and generally applicable elements from various systems and approaches.
Hok-Lin Leung's focus is on planning at the city level, and he has organized the text according to the logical sequence of plan-making: justifications for making a land use plan, a plan for plan-making, planning goals, information, analysis, synthesis, and implementation. He addresses major debates in land planning today, including controversial material, and concludes with suggestions on the qualifications and qualities of a land use planner. By encouraging a shared understanding of the purpose, analytic skills and substantive considerations of plan-making ? as well as the ways and means of plan-implementation ? this book helps the planner to become more responsible and responsive to the many issues surrounding land use and its important role in addressing human needs.

In 1919, the Town Planning Institute of Canada (TPIC) brought together the founders of a new discipline committed to improving cities and those who live in them. TPIC's Journal, and its successor, Plan Canada, provide a wealth of knowledge about Canadian planning. These journals have served as the voice for Canadian urban planning theory, history, and practice; Plan Canada, as the journal of record of Canadian planning research and practice, continues to inform international discourse about the profession.A Reader in Canadian Planning: Linking Theory and Practice is a selection of some of the most important and provocative articles from Plan Canada from the last 30 years.Articles included in the Reader highlight the accomplishments and contribution of Canadian planning theory and practice. It is suitable as a text for courses in Canadian community planning theory and practice, and for those preparing for the Canadian Institute of Planner's entrance examination. Jill Grant's introduction and commentaries develop a theoretical and historical framework to set a context for the papers and the issues they raise.
1995 “Land-Use Planning", in R. Paehlke (ed.) Conservation and Environmentalism: An Encyclopedia, New York: Garland Publishing, pp. 392-394.
Focusing on both problems and solutions, this authoritative reference work covers all aspects of the environment, from the Everglades to the Himalayas, from legislation in Australia to pollution problems in Eastern Europe, from tropical rain forests to the Porcupine Caribou herd of the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic. The Encyclopedia is filled with valuable information, encompassing studies of species (butterflies, bats, elephants, dolphins), conservation efforts, environmental organizations, treaties, toxic-chemical hazards, resource conservation, conservation concepts (biodiversity, landscape ecology) energy-use impacts, and other vital subjects. The coverage reflects environmental concerns that have dominated front-page headlines for the past four decades: from the Exxon Valdez to Bhopal and Chernobyl, from air pollution to Love Canal, from whale and dolphin preservation to rhino poaching.
