Abstract

Congestion is worse than ever and land development continues unabated into the countryside. Recent accounts suggest that unprecedented conditions are ahead; coordinated land use and transport planning in metropolitan areas is both targeted as a solution and the subject of increased scrutiny. Planning for Place and Plexus provides a fresh and unique perspective on metropolitan land use and transport networks, challenging current planning strategies and offering frameworks to understand and evaluate policy. The book suggests actions for the future urban growth of metropolitan areas and includes current and cutting edge theory, findings, and recommendations which are cleverly illustrated throughout using international examples. Planning for Place and Plexus is a valuable resource for students, researchers, practitioners and policy advisors working across transport, land-use and planning.
