Building a Compact City : Spatial Planning in Yinchuan City, Western China, Paperback / softback Book

Building a Compact City : Spatial Planning in Yinchuan City, Western China Paperback / softback

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Geography series

Paperback / softback

Description

This book serves as a solid ground for seeking strategies to build the compact city that situated in a specific local area, based on the systematic examination of the effects of spatial planning system on urbanization control.

Furthermore, the critical problems in the urban planning process are revealed, and the possible approaches to improve the local planning system toward effectively promoting more compact development are discussed.

This book also provides a comprehensive picture for understanding the mutual influences between the planning, its implementation, and urban developments, particularly in the context of cities of western China, while these cities are experiencing dramatic urban growth in recent years but walking into a quite different development path comparing to the eastern mega cities. In nearly two decades, government officials, professional planners, scholars of urban studies, citizens who concern sustainable development are talking about the compact city, a promising vision for sustaining our growing or shrinking cities.

Abundance of debates fall on the images, measurement and strengths of the compact city, while the substantializing of the vision in a specific city has been barely explored.
