There is a growing trend in Europe and the United States towards local use of the referendum to decide land use matters.

Using examples from the United States this book includes an analysis and overview of direct democracy, the increasing use of ballot box planning to settle land use issues, legal considerations of ballot box planning and the future of this type of urban management.
