Hours & Credits
The pattern of urban development affects fuel use and may impose serious environmental and public health impacts including pollution, congestion and social isolation. Land use and transport integration has the potential to make cities more sustainable in a variety of ways, and more adaptable to changes in needs and resources in the future. The rise of car-based planning as the dominant planning approach of the past century is traced, including the spread of the Radburn Plan and the influence on shopping centres and other development. The subject introduces Active Transport, based on providing opportunities for physical activity through walking, cycling and public transport, and develops a critical understanding of contemporary Urban Design and Planning movements including Transit Oriented Development.
