Urban planning and management

edited by Kenneth G. Willis, R. Kerry Turner, Ian J. Bateman

"Urban Planning and Management" presents a collection of key articles on different aspects of sustainability in urban planning and management whilst simultaneously illustrating the conflicting arguments about whether and how sustainability should be achieved. Part 1 covers the factors determining the life and death of cities and what is required to achieve sustainable development. In part 2 issues of whether cities should be compact or dispersed and concepts of sustainable development in third world cities and societies are explored. Parts 3 and 4 examine design as an integral part of producing a sustainable urban policy and energy use. Part 5 deals with Local Agenda 21 issues and part 6 looks at town planning. Part 7 discusses transport as both a product and determinant of sustainable urban planning and management. Part 8, 9 and 10 examine the sustainable provision of other services including waste collection, recycling schemes and water. In part 11 sustainability is shown as occurring within, and constrained by, legal, property rights and management practices.
