Programming urban development and the incremental cost of urban services : Melbourne, 1953-4 to 1965-6

Paterson, John Pryde


The objective of this thesis is to identify the conditions under which an urban development plan can be described as 'optimal'. The method is partly deductive and partly empirical, using data taken from Melbourne to test the operational value of concepts developed in the theoretical discussion. Conclusions will be drawn as to the correct focus of 'planning' effort required for an 'optimal' development programme.
