The planning of large new residential and business areas starts with preparing a partial master plan for the area. A partial master plan is a general description of where residential buildings, workplaces and recreational areas will be located in the new area, for example. The partial master plan guides the detailed planning of the area, the detailed planning. Detailed plans are often drawn up in sectors. The planning and construction of large projects may take 10 to 20 years.
