Overview

The increase in personal mobility has had a major impact on the scale, design and function of our urban and regional land uses. Planners should have an understanding of all movement networks, especially those that are integral to the functioning of our cities and towns, and how sustainable forms of transport can be maximised through an integrated land use and mobility approach to urban and regional planning.

This course explores what constitutes urban and regional movement networks and provides an explanation as to why these networks have had a major impact on our cities and regions. It will be begin by explaining why urban and regional planners have a critical role in maximising the use of sustainable modes of travel before examining more detailed applications of integrated land use and transport, with reference to international, national and local case studies. It will also include examination of the dominance of the private car in recent development history and look at how 'complete' streets can be achieved for urban development.
