Urban planning and development

Urban planning is the orderly development of urban areas, in both cities and towns. Urban planning can have a significant influence on the type, location and affordability of housing.

A number of AHURI projects have examined urban planning processes to assess their impact on the cost of housing developments and to identify mechanisms for improving the supply of affordable housing and the environmental and social sustainability of urban areas.
