Brochure Text

This course is designed as an introduction to the role of land in rural and urban environments. It also reviews land use and aims to allow critical judgments to be made about the balance of uses of a finite resource. This will cover changes in land use from rural to urban (and in a few cases back) as well as changes in both rural and urban use (eg coastal protection and 'brownfield' development and problems associated with it).
