The article argues that appeals against decisions to approve local plans, which according to the Act can be made only on legal grounds, are now considerably less likely to succeed than when the previous Act had been in force. Thus, the means for controlling the quality of planning laid down in the Act do not work properly. The reasons for this deficiency are found in the ambiguities and inconsistencies contained in the Act, which stem from the fact that it is a compromise. The Act is prone to pathologies in its implementation: plans that are at odds with the stated objectives of the Act are declared legal by the administrative courts. The article identifies several contradictory features within the Land Use and Building Act that can generate pathologies in planning practices.
