Spanish term or phrase: planificación territorial
Literally "territorial planning", but it's a text about urban planning, so to avoid repetition of "planning" I was thinking I might be able to use the term "zoning". Thoughts?

Explanation:
That's how it appears in various links, as I see it, you may go for it. Otherwise I keep finding phrases like "urban AND territorial planning"...it seems "urban planning" may be part of "territorial planning" always depending on which kind of administration is doing the planning, whether a national or local body. Hope it helps :)

Thanks, Paul - just the confirmation I needed! BTW, it's one of those sociological-environmental-urban planning-cum-architecture documents our wonderful Generalitat's so fond of producing... they use nouns like "projectació" for planning or project design... gonna drive me crazy!

Thanks again.
