The Vancouver Achievement: Urban Planning and Design
John PunterISBN: 0774809728;
Book DescriptionThis book examines the development of Vancouver?s unique approach to zoning, planning, and urban design from the early 1970s to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Vancouver has established an excellent reputation in North America for its planning achievements, especially for its discretionary zoning system, cooperative planning model for megaprojects, discretionary control of major developments, development levies, management of neighborhood change, and strategic citywide approach to building intensification. These systems place Vancouver at the forefront of international planning practice. This book builds upon an exhaustive analysis of city planning documents, supplemented by in-depth interviews with leading local planners, politicians, architects, and developers. Generously illustrated, it will appeal to academic and professional audiences, as well as the general public.
