Governing Compact Cities

How to Connect Planning, Design and Transport

Philipp Rode

Governing Compact Cities investigates how governments and other critical actors organise to enable compact urban growth, combining higher urban densities, mixed use and urban design quality with more walkable and public transport-oriented urban development. Philipp Rode draws on empirical evidence from London and Berlin to examine how urban policymakers, professionals and stakeholders have worked across disciplinary silos, geographic scales and different time horizons since the early 1990s.

Chapter 3: Integrated urban governance and its institutions

How to Connect Planning, Design and Transport

Philipp Rode

Extract

This chapter presents a theoretical discussion on planning and policy integration and introduces several general perspectives that emerged from the empirical investigation in the two case study cities London and Berlin. The chapter features a discussion of the links between institutional arrangements, policy capacity and outcomes and then moves to the critical role of integrated urban governance for implementing compact urban growth. This chapter also covers broader perspectives related to integration and holistic governance, the central definitions and the operationalisation of planning and policy integration, and presents the framework of integration mechanisms. The second half of this chapter discusses three broader perspectives that emerged from the analysis of the two case study cities. These concern the central question about the role of hierarchical structures and networks in facilitating integration, the impact of institutional change itself and the privileging of specific integration content as part of integrated planning and policymaking.
