Overview

As a comprehensive treatment of the twin processes of planning and development, Urban planning and real estate development is the first major book to bring the two fields together in a single text. It will be essential reading for students and practitioners alike. Fluctuating economic conditions, new legislative frameworks, political and social changes, advances in information technology and communications, and innovations in management theory and practice - all conspire to create a climate of constant change. The book has been written with all these factors in mind. The scene is set by an introductory part that provides context and perspective on planning and real estate development. The main part of the book is then divided into four. The second and third parts are devoted primarily to planning matters and the fourth and fifth are mainly concerned with development issues: The book concludes with some of the most pressing questions that currently face the planning profession and the development industry. Urban planning and real estate development is intended principally for students of real estate in all its guises - estate management, land management, land economy, general practice surveying and real estate - and of town planning in its various forms - urban planning, urban & regional planning, environmental planning and town planning. The book will also provide an explanatory guide for other allied courses concerned with the stewardship of the built environment, such as architecture, urban design, engineering, building, surveying, economics and law. Those engaged in professional practice across the disciplines of the built environment should also find the text to be a useful source of reference.
