Event description

Description

The University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning, where Leslie Stein is an Adjunct Professor of Urban Planning, invites you to attend the launch of his book Comparative Urban Land Use Planning: Best Practice, published by Sydney University Press.

The book will be launched by the Hon. Rob Stokes, M.P, Minister for Education and former New South Wales Minister for Planning.




Professor Stein will discuss his findings of 7 years of research into the planning practices of 80 countries in search of what works.

His conclusion is that the real urban problems: depression, alcohol and drug addiction, crime, income inequality, poverty, racism, alienation and family dysfunction are not aided by a strategic plan, a zoning map and development controls. Best practices are, however, emerging to address these issues, changing the way that urban planning is conceived.
