9780754643920: Urban Environmental Planning: Policies, Instruments and Methods in an International Perspective (Urban Planning and Environment)

Originally published in 1997, Urban Environmental Planning provides a groundbreaking overview of innovative methods and techniques for measuring and managing the environmental effects of urban land uses on other urban activities. Fully revised and updated, this second edition brings together a team of leading environmental planners and policy makers from the US, UK, Europe and SE Asia to address the central questions confronting sustainable urban development. Typical questions include: How can you measure and manage the negative environmental effects of intrusive urban activities such as manufacturing and transport on sensitive land uses including residential and recreational areas? Can a balance be found between reducing these effects through means such as separating conflicting land uses? While other sources identify the need for effective programmes to improve urban environmental quality, this volume describes and assesses analytical methods and implementing programmes practised by leading communities around the world.

Review:

'This update of the 1997 volume on Urban Environmental Planning is exceptionally welcome in light of recent changes in urban sustainability planning discourse. This revised collection reflects both the changing questions and new methods and data available to address those issues. Its comparative scope and reliance on examples from many different cities helps the reader to consider how innovations from across the globe can be made applicable to the local setting he or she addresses. ' Professor Peter B. Meyer, University of Louisville, USA 'For those concerned with sustainable development and environmental improvement, this is an excellent and worthwhile book. It provides evidence-based research into environmental problems in urban areas, and gives good practice examples and solutions drawn from many countries around the world. This fully updated second edition is both timely and essential reading for all those who care about the urban environments, and who want knowledge of the tools to make them sustainable. ' Professor Mike Jenks, Co-director of the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development, Oxford Brookes University, UK '...innovative...a book with thought-provoking ideas.' Built Environment '...a very interesting read...addresses issues, dichotomies and problems faced in designing programs for improvement in environmental quality of urban areas.' Australian Planner Reviews of 1997 edition: '...an intriguing collection of international contributions...For town planners seeking new ways of tackling environmental problems in urban areas, this book is well worth reading.' Planning '...the book makes a valuable contribution to the widening concern to integrate environmental management with spatial planning. Urban Environmental Planning provides a useful and accessible reference source for students and planning practitioners who find they are working more with environmental issues and wish to consider how they can apply planning solutions to environmental quality problems.' Town Planning Review 'This collection focuses on defining the major issues and programs that are both technically sound and politically acceptable.' Abstracts of Public Administration, Development and Environment
