This article is about the role of urban planning in the management of land value increments which result from investments in infrastructure or administrative changes in land use norms and regulations led by the public sector. The raised question is whether the current planning approaches utilized by local governments contribute to the private appropriation of land value increments or whether, on the contrary, they allow governments to capture part of this added value in the name of the public interest. The paper argues that in Argentina there are three competing approaches by which local governments address this issue: a laissez faire approach, an entrepreneurial approach and a socially-oriented approach. It goes on to examine the principles, legal basis and instruments of each approach and presents examples of large projects managed in accordance with them.
