Description

The subject uses concepts from basic microeconomic theory to understand the development of overall urban structures and the operation of land markets within cities. It then focuses on the economic principles underpinning urban economic planning and transport infrastructure investments. This enables students to critically assess, understand and explain key urban trends such as urban consolidation and challenges such as housing affordability and urban disadvantage. Students engage in interactive lectures with a range of practitioners and policy experts and study real world cases to appreciate the role of planning in unlocking development capacity through infrastructure investment.
