methods of urban planning:
policy: document outlining visions for method of sustainable urban planning; can be a
legislative policy - enforceable by the government & must be implemented in practice
plan: document outlining objectives and strategies for sustainable urban planning
- made step by step for implementation
implementation: the action of providing for and evaluating planning objectives and
strategies: delivering of the policy or plan
Sustainable Urban Planning
- taken down to a tangible form
1. sustainable energy
- mitigate effects of fossil fuel heating and electricity use
- solar energy
- co-generation: heating and cooling provision by water pipes [gradient heating]
- wind energy [first/only urban wind turbine in Toronto by CNE]
- built in 2002 costs 1.2 million, funded by Hydro Toronto & federal government
- 1800 MW/year, energy for 250 homes
- cities do not happen to be able to accumulate a lot of wind, NIMBY, potential
danger for birds
- plan to put Guildwood, Scarborough but community activist to stop as it will 'ruin
