This course will begin by introducing students to the role and influence of the four levels of government on land use planning. With primary emphasis on the urban environment, participants will be introduced to the concepts and objectives of community planning, and the influence of the many stakeholder groups. Guided by the current legislation, students will be introduced to the processes of changes in land use, and subdivision of land. Students will then be provided with a broad overview of the constraints and limitations of the many different aspects of municipal infrastructure needed to support urban development. The course will conclude with an introduction to some of the primary factors that influence development economics.
