Planning Politics & City Making by Bishop Peter Williams Lesley
The King's Cross scheme is one of the largest and most complex developments taking place in Britain today. Through documenting this seminal case-study this book sheds light on the complex process through which public realm development proposals are planned and approved: through complex negotiation and deal making involving many different stakeholders. * Unique insider's account: draws on first-hand interviews and full access to previously confidential material from primary sources.* Comprehensive look at urban planning relevant to both students and practitioners.* Currently very little available on the process through which public realm schemes are planned and approved.* Kings Cross is now a standing event in the teaching calendars of many planning schools.* Huge international market: KX visitor centre receives delegations on study tours from Japan Taiwan China USA India Korea Australia Malaysia UAE Russia South Africa Mexico and most the EU.
