This subject, together with 15302 Major Project: Methods and 15304 Major Project: Outcomes, develops core skills that give students the ability to successfully complete rigorous and original planning problem-solving exercises. Students produce an analysis of the causes and effects of their chosen planning problem as the second of three parts of the major project (the other two parts are completed in Major Projects: Methods and Major Projects: Outcomes). Students produce a report which identifies the nature of the planning problem, the causes which give rise to this particular problem and the effects of the problem in terms of the environmental, economic and sociocultural consequences. This allows students to evaluate the extent of the problem and the potential stakeholders involved in addressing the problem, and develops student abilities to reflectively assess the nature, causes and effects of urban planning problems from a holistic perspective that incorporates the physical environment, the economy and society. The subject is undertaken primarily via self-direction but students are carefully guided by their supervisors and meet on a regular basis to discuss their research on the selected topics.
