PLANNING LAW AND POLICY
Credit points: 15
This subject explores the way that planning law and policy regulates the use and development of land. We consider the concepts of sustainability and social equity and assess whether the policy and legal framework created by planning laws forward these principles. We also consider the processes of strategic planning, development and environmental assessments and appeals and review of decision-making in a range of different practical, cultural and geographical contexts. This gives rise to a range of issues such as democratic and community participation, climate change, sustainable development, land use conflict and environmental justice.
