CoordinatorDr Jennifer Eve Day
This subject explores ways that the economic production of goods and services shapes the vitality, structure and planning agenda of cities. It uses an economic sectoral perspective to demonstrate how sectorssuch as manufacturing, transport, services and creative activities have locational impacts in certain cities and within selected parts of cities. Complex planning issues, requiring judgments about the competing demands of economic development and social needs, are associated with the growth and decline of sectors in their particular urban contexts. Special attention will be paid to innovation in city development, and to the planning of infrastructure in airports, seaports and telecommunications.
|Objectives:||On completion of the subject students will have learned how to address complex planning issues in particular urban economic contexts. They will also develop: |
Tutorial papers totalling 1000 words (20%) and a research essay of 4000 words (80%).
|Recommended Texts:||Readings compiled by the coordinator.|
|Breadth Options:|| |
