Subject Overview:

This subject is designed to enable students to apply knowledge and skills developed in the previous three years' study to 'live' planning issues, in depth, in a selected area - similar to the 'real world' experience of planning.. It will provide the opportunity to learn from and interact with a wide range of relevant decision-makers, each contributing to students' understanding of a major urban planning challenge in the selected locality. Response to that challenge, through group work alongside staff and involving site visits, will foster data gathering, analytical and presentation skills.

Assessment: A 1500 word scoping report putting an issue in international, national and metropolitan planning context (30%). A 1500 word outline of the possible alternative approaches to the issue (30%). A 2000 word proposed strategy (40%).
