On completion of this module, students should be able to:
1. Critically assess the current state of the town and country planning system in Britain.
2. Assess the operation of the planning system with respect to the rural context
3. Analyse current research contributions to planning theory and practice
4. Evaluate current planning practice in a range of land use situations
The Land Use planning system has a profound impact on the management of the rural resource and it is important that students studying rural subjects are aware of the strengths and limitations of the system to secure its stated goals. A range of planning cases will be studied, together with a wider critique of the theories, models and discourse on the future direction of planning. The module will also review current research themes within the literature and examine the implications for future planning practice.
The aims of the module are:-
To evaluate the operation of the planning system in a wide range of land use contexts.
To appreciate current research themes in planning
To critically assess current planning theory and practice.
Writing in an academic context.
The module will directly assess this through a seen exam paper.
