Subject outline

This subject builds on an examination of the historical development and rise of cities as the engines of economic development, culture and invention. The process of the planning and development of cities is examined using the emergence of planning theory as applied to cities in Australia, North America, Europe and the developing world. In particular, the unit examines the failure of the comprehensive masterplan and a systems approach to the planning of cities in contrast to the emergence of strategic planning and intervention to guide and manage cities, and the development of models of city governance. Case studies relate to growth management, smart growth, community engagement processes, urban design, promotion of mixed use, public and private sector partnerships and strategic intervention. The effectiveness of contemporary city planning approaches is examined.
