Programme Highlights

Inter-mixing land uses and balancing urban growth can yield significant demand- and supply-side benefits to the transport sector. A Green TOD (Transit Oriented Development) model is presented in this regard. The talk concludes by addressing possible motivations for separating urban activities, as embodied in contemporary zoning and land-use regulatory practices, including social and class exclusion and perceptions of non-compatibility among uses. Mechanisms for overcoming barriers to mixed land uses are offered. For details, see http://www.hku.hk/hkuits/DTLS2011.htm.
