Availability Location Mode Non-standard teaching period UWA (Perth) Face to face
- This field-based unit provides students with advanced training in regional planning. It introduces students to the history of regional planning and contemporary approaches to plan making, with a particular focus on the integration of economic, social and land use needs. Students are then required to undertake a comprehensive assessment of a selected region and prepare a detailed regional plan.
- Students are able to (1) appreciate the competing theoretical perspectives on regional planning; (2) understand the data needs required for a regional plan; (3) synthesise and interpret economic, social and land use data from a selected regional setting; and (4) prepare an integrated regional plan.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) a project brief (30 per cent) and (2) a regional planning report (70 per cent). Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
