|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is about planning a system for the distribution of goods and services within urban areas. The shopping and retailing system is analysed from both the demand side (shopping) and the supply side (retailing). Analyses are made of the interplay between private sector developers and public sector planners for the provision of shopping and retailing opportunities in urban centres. It covers the theory, practice and techniques for the planning of shopping facilities. Comparisons are made between the Australian, UK and North American contexts. Appropriate survey and analytical techniques are introduced including retail distribution, market analysis, forecasting demand for goods and services using the Australian Bureau of Statistics household expenditure survey, psychographic market segmentation and translation of consumer demand into floor space needs and provision. Consumer trends and government policies are analysed. Topics include the microeconomic order in shopping districts and centres, the development of corporate shopping centres and the revitalization of traditional shopping streets.
