Aims/Description: This module examines evolving approaches to spatial regulation through the planning system. The module considers the mechanisms used to make decisions about development through planning control and development plans. The module explores the changing priorities for governments in the regulation of development and issues of power, control, influence and public engagement with the planning system. The module takes an international perspective that compares and contrasts the basis for spatial regulation in different national and urban contexts.
