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 6: Conclusion: comparison and implications

How to Connect Planning, Design and Transport

Philipp Rode

Extract

This chapter returns to a broader perspective on planning and policy integration. The first section argues that the findings of the presented analysis do indeed allow for a linkage between a compact city policy agenda and the observed institutional changes. This is followed by a comparative perspective of the actual ‘how’ of integrating urban planning, city design and transport policies in London and Berlin in the second and third sections. These sections also offer a more explicit overview of converging and diverging tendencies as part of the approaches in the two cities. Finally, the chapter returns to urban practice and identifies possible practical implications of the presented findings. It also considers insights from the two case study cities that may be transferable to cities elsewhere. The closing section is dedicated to final deliberations and a perspective on related future academic enquiry.
