Modules

Year 1
  • Development and regeneration
    This module provides an advanced introduction to urban regeneration and development. The focus will be on understanding the nature of development, the economic and social drivers, financial appraisal of schemes and the development process. The reasons for, and nature of, urban regeneration interventions will be critically examined, exploring both property-led and community-led schemes and the links between property development and social/community benefits derived from planning gain.
  • Regeneration strategies and projects
    The module focuses on contemporary regeneration practice, which in recent years has taken place within an increasingly competitive context including declining public finance. The module seeks to link theory to practice and requires students to explore elements of regeneration theory in the context of a specific 'major' project and the regeneration strategy that provides a framework for development in the wider area. The module allows students to explore the links between theory and practice in contemporary approaches to regeneration and between individual 'flagship' projects and the wider regeneration strategy within which they are situated.
  • Sustainable places (with EU field study visit)
    This module examines sustainability issues and challenges and the initiatives and responses from spatial planning and related agencies, institutions and organisations in the context of a European field study visit. The module aims to provide students with a detailed knowledge and understanding of the different forces at work within a region or city context. It will develop the students' understanding of sustainability issues and the impact of climate change; recognise the processes of change and identify issues and mechanisms that allow an area to develop to fulfil its potential as well as respond to environmental and related challenges.
  • Planning in London
    This module examines the planning context of London; as a World City, as a centre for financial industries, as a home to millions of people. It is of particular interest to those who wish to study town planning in the UK, and to understand how a major city functions. The module aims to provide students with a detailed knowledge and understanding of the different forces at work when shaping a major World City. Where specialism areas have been chosen, the students will undertake their work for this module within the context of that planning specialism i.e. urban regeneration, design and physical planning, or environmental policy and planning.
Two options from:
  • Housing management and renewal
  • Housing and urban development
  • City marketing
    Cities, be they historic, seaside, regional or capital, are the power houses of the tourism and hospitality industry. They shape and are shaped by tourism and hospitality which has become a major economic driver and re-imaging agent of city governance agencies as they seek to re-invent their themselves in the new global order. This module seeks to explain the role of tourism and hospitality and the visitor economy in the modern city and to critically analyse this in relation to a number of theoretical perspectives. The module will equip you with a critical understanding of broader perspectives required to manage and market tourism in the modern city and inform city marketing strategies.
  • Planning practice project
    You'll have the opportunity to develop an individual project based on your chosen specialist area of study. The project must link together both theoretical and practice debates within the area of specialism (where required) and must be practice focused. You'll be able to relate the subject content contained in the specialist area of study to practical problems that may be encountered in a work situation. You'll be encouraged to explore the links between planning education and practice through a particular practice relevant project. In addition, the module will prepare you for your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).

Part-time students attend classed one-day-per-week, with one or two modules being taught in each semester plus the dissertation being completed by the end of January in the third year.
