Course Description

In this course you will study of the theory and practice of transport and land use planning in urban areas. This course aims to give you an overview of an area that is frequently controversial, and encourages you to read widely and think critically. Transport planning is a field characterised by strongly held views that are rarely subjected to serious scrutiny and by a tendency for ‘spin’ to take the place of serious policies and plans. The intention of this course is to canvass a range of views and approaches.
