Urban and Transport Planning
Part 2 Sectoral Issues - Chapter 6


To achieve more sustainable use of energy and natural resources in urban areas through integrated urban and transport planning and more efficient sub-division and building design.

Strategic Approach

This can best be achieved as part of more general strategies intended to address a broad range of economic and social problems associated with current urban and transport planning regimes. These include examining the most appropriate approach to improving urban densities, the adoption of a coordinated approach to urban and transport development and improvement in government planning and coordination.
