Growth management in the U.S. go! Available Online Available in Print Multimedia Resource

Illustrated by a study of the San Francisco bay area, this book puts forward an innovative theoretical approach to growth management, analysing it as a tool for controlling land use expansion in the US. This region makes a particularly useful study as it has encountered long term growth pressures, complex land use demands and the application of a wide variety of growth management approaches over the past few decades. Using empirical, qualitative analysis, the book examines which growth management activities have actually been put into practice and which have proved successful and questions how such a planning approach functions in today’s complex and multi-faceted planning paradigms.
