Modules

This course acquaints students with the nature, purpose, theory, organisation and processes of spatial planning. Spatial planning seeks to give a geographical expression to economic, social, cultural and ecological policies of society. As a system of governance that is concerned with mediating space and making places, spatial planning grapples with issues that involve complex geographical, legal, environmental, economic, social, and political factors. Cotemporary Planning Systems (CPS) introduces you to the complex and contentious world of urban spatial planning.
