Abstract/Summary Planners tend to focus on the three dimensions of the physically built environment and neglect the fourth dimension of time. This chapter argues that for both planning practitioners and planning educators the discipline of time dimension is critical in a number of important ways. Planning, in fact, should be about yesterday and today as well as about tomorrow. The paper discusses some neglected aspects of planning for the future, draws attention to some aspects of the past that are similarly ignored, and then links past, present and future through the idea of ‘path dependence’.
