|Subject Overview:|| |
Theories of planning, values, power and urban governance are addressed. Different ways in which policies shape the city are explored. Urban governance encompasses the provision of infrastructure for the city and the delivery of services: the roads, tracks, pipes, wires, electromagnetic towers, forms of communication, and social and commercial services. These concepts are linked to the analysis of case studies of different cities, their forms of governance and approaches to planning. Examples are studied that have important lessons in planning both for Australian cities and for the new developing cities of the Asia Pacific region.
|Assessment:||Tutorial papers totalling 3000 words (60%) and a research essay of 2000 words (40%). Note that students taking 705-658 will undertake advanced-level tutorial exercises and essay topics.|
