    Many aspects of geography studied by second level students involve change and development in Ireland. The planning system is a crucial aspect of the process of guiding and controlling the geography of environmental change. In many respects, planning is a form of applied geography as it seeks to shape the geography of the future. This article gives an overview of modern planning. As such, it is concerned to convey the logic that underpins the planning process by describing its purpose and function as a government activity. Later articles will describe the evolution of the planning system and examine how it operates in practice in contemporary Ireland.
