General Plan


(1) A general plan for the development of a city is a scientifically based long-range plan for urban development (with respect to an old city, a plan for its reconstruction and further development). In the USSR a general plan is worked out for a period of 25 to 30 years; after it is approved by the Council of Ministers of the USSR (or the council of ministers of a union republic, oblast, or krai executive committee), it is the chief city-building document on the basis of which specific projects for planning and building the city are drawn up.

(2) A general plan for an industrial enterprise is one of the most important parts of the design for an industrial enterprise and contains integrated solutions to questions dealing with the planning and organization of public amenities and facilities on the territory; the distribution of buildings, installations, means of transportation, and the engineering network; the organization of the systems of auxiliary services for the plant and the personnel; and the location of the enterprise in the industrial region (hub).
