    “environmental geology” which seems appropriate. Unfortunately this holistic approach of urban geology in land use planning is seldom applied. There are however classic books about urban geology including “Cities and Geology (Legget, ) but the intent was not to develop a separate title Size: KB. Within urban and rural communities, geography plays a critical role in the development of the built environment. Urban planners must rely on knowledge of geographic space when deciding how best to manage growth. As the cities of the world grow and more rural land is developed, ensuring smart growth and practical environmental management are necessary goals.

    Land-use planning is one of the most important planning in the process of national economy development. Traditional land-use planning rarely considers the impact of the geological environment. This paper takes a case study of Qingyang City and evaluates the geological environment on the basis of mining geo-environment background and field survey on geo-environment problems to form different Author: Zhao Ji, Zeng Ying Zhao, Mei Chen Fu, Xiao Tao Zhang, Jin Sheng Zhou. Important goals of land use planning: – leverage the city as a driver of economic growth – create centres of activity at urban transport nodes (e.g. terminals for high speed rail passenger transport) • Focus on transport of hazardous substances (roads, railways and waterways) in urban areas • Bottlenecks particularly in rail transport:File Size: KB.
