  • European urban sprawl : sustainability, cultures of (anti)urbanism and hybrid cityscapes
  • Europe ; Sustainable development ; Urban geography ; Urban sprawl
  • This paper has its origins in a comparative research project examining aspects of urban sprawl in Europe undertaken within the 5.FP EU. The project Urban Sprawl : European Patterns, Environmental Degradation and Sustainable Development (URBS PANDENS
  • EVK4-CT- 2001-00052) sought to understand recent trends in urban sprawl in a number of case study urban regions and to advise the European Commission on policy development with regard to the control, management and amélioration of the effects of urban

  • Uncontrolled growth : rururban sprawl in Antigua
  • An examination of the economic growth in Antigua in the last decade, showing the extent of urban sprawl (or rururban sprawl) in Antigua. No close monitoring of changing land-use patterns exists and organization for the planning and zoning of land

  • A. begins be discussing the perceptions of urban sprawl and notes that it is also a problem for small cities (50,000 population and less). Then she reviews the definitions of sprawl, quantitative measures, and qualitative descriptors. She then uses
  • three satellite images (1984, 1992, 2001) to assess the sprawl in the La Crosse, Wisconsin metro area. Whereas the image reveal a 205% increase in urban land over the study period, US Census Bureau data indicates a 18% population increase. She concludes
  • Characterising urban sprawl on a local scale with accessibility measures
  • Accessibility ; Indicator ; Land use ; Measurement ; South Korea ; Urban function ; Urban geography ; Urban morphology ; Urban sprawl
  • The study aims to develop and operationalise accessibility-based sprawl indicators. It employs two accessibility-based indicator categories and develops their measures : accessibilities to urban functions and open spaces. The index shaws a clear
  • difference from the morphology-based ones, suggesting that the judgement on sprawl may be wrong if it is purely based on morphology.
  • Urban sprawl and urban planning in Japan
  • Contested Landscapes of Urban Sprawl: Landscape Protection and Regional Planning in Scania, Sweden, 1932–1947
  • Conflict ; Landscape ; Periurban development ; Regional planning authority ; Scania ; Sweden ; Twentieth Century ; Urban planning ; Urban sprawl ; Urbanization ; environmental planning ; peri-urban development ; planning history ; urban fringe
  • Studies in landscape and planning history are used here in order to critically examine the debate on urban sprawl and to reveal embedded conflicts within spatial planning aiming to curb sprawl. The paper aims to illustrate this with an examination
  • of one of the earliest attempts to control peri-urban development at a regional level in Sweden. The discourse on sprawl is first introduced and the fruitfulness of landscape studies in capturing inherent and conflicting aims within planning is examined
  • for the development of the plan, as well as the contradictory treatment of urban sprawl (on a local and regional level), is demonstrated. The final part discusses the importance of this historiography for the ability to deal with the current planning situation
  • . The conclusion is that urban sprawl is not necessarily the result of weak or absent planning, but rather of embedded contradictions within planning; therefore stronger planning will never be sufficient as long as the inherent conflicts within the plans
  • Measuring urban sprawl in Beijing with geo-spatial indices
  • Beijing ; Cartography ; China ; Geographical information system ; Index ; Spatial analysis ; Urban sprawl ; Urbanization
  • , etc. Various GIS spatial analysis methods are used to spatialize these indices into 100m x 100m cells. Besides, an integrated urban sprawl index is calculated by weight sum of these 13 indices. Four sprawling patterns are identified : randomly
  • expansion at urban fringe, strip development along or between highways, scattered development of industrial land, leapfrog development of urban residence and industrial area.
  • Human sprawl and the African wilderness of Okavango
  • Attempts to modify human sprawl near the Okavango wilderness area, currently in an initial phase needs to address the underlying forces of population growth, rural income opportunities, urban employment opportunities and environmentally
  • Policies to control urban sprawl : planning regulations or changes in the rules of the game ?
  • Israel ; Land ; Land use ; Local finance ; Local government ; Local taxation ; Urban development ; Urban fringe ; Urban planning
  • The paper emphasizes two mechanisms that determine the rules of game of local development and public regulation of urban sprawl : local government finance and the transfer of land from rural to urban local authorities. Sharing local taxes paid

  • Since its founding, Dallas has grown centrifugally. Since the 1990s, however, it has also grown centripetally, with developers building walkable, mixed-use islands in the midst of metropolitan sprawl. This article surveys what amounts to a historic

  • This paper proposes to measure sprawl in metropolitan regions as marginal changes in land use over time though the following metrics : change in urban housing unit density, marginal land consumption per new urban household, housing unit density
  • in newly urbanized areas and percent of newhousing units located in previously developed areas) are computed for all metropolitan areas in the continental USA for 1980 and 2000. Changes in development patterns reflect interactions of market and geographic
  • structures. States with a substantial state role in planning accommodate a higher percentage of new housing units in previously developed areas and with lower marginal land consumption, suggesting that policy can mitigate sprawl development.
