    Pyle, Lizabeth A. The Land Market Beyond the Urban Fringe. The Geographical Review. 75 (1): Land ownership changes in rural areas beyond the urban fringe open the way for shifts to residential land use. Sellers, buyers, and local government are the chief participants in the rural-urban conversion process in their land use zones. Loss of agricultural land diminishes environmental quality by reducing the beneficial role which the land itself can play. Agri- cultural land reduces runoff by absorbing precipitation, aids in re- plenishing groundwater supplies, buffers ive areas from encroaching development, and serves in waStewater treatment through land treatment processes.

    a. Is it true that agricultural land prices are declining, and promoting farmland conversion? If so, do local governments, or residents, agree with the GMA farmland preservation goal? b. At the urban fringe, to what degree do farmers want to sell their land to the developers? Here should be noted that there is no so-called regulated agricultural housing in the land use plans like other land use plans in Jordan. Urban sprawl on agricultural land in areas of the.

    The Bollaertbeek catchment (23 km 2, farmers) with mixed urban/ rural land use is part of the surface water capturing area of the drinking water production company De Watergroep. PPP concentrations are a problem for water quality in the catchment. Despite several extension and training campaigns on water contamination problems by PPPs, there still is a low uptake of mitigation measures. Until the s Israel was implementing a strict agricultural land preservation policy program, rooted in Zionist ideology. This was changed when shifts in Israeli planning and land policy towards the end of the 20th century brought about accelerated growth and sprawling development in agricultural lands at the urban-rural fringe, particularly in the Tel Aviv metropolitan region (TMR).Cited by:

In an article entitled "Urban-Rural Fringe" written inWehrwein outlined the inevitable growth which must occur when there is an absence of land-use control within the zone of transition which lies between areas of well-recognized urban development and lands devoted to agriculture.
