Description

This edited volume defines and compares central aspects of governance and management related to urban open spaces such as long-term management, combined governance and management, and strategic management of urban open spaces. Perspectives such as ethical considerations, user participation and changes in local governmental structures frame the governance and management of urban open spaces. Jansson and Randrup create a comprehensive resource detailing global trends from framing and understanding to finally practising urban open space governance and management. They conclude by promoting positive changes such as pro-active management and strategic maintenance plans to encourage the creation of more sustainable cities.

Illustrated in full colour throughout, this book is an essential read for students and academics of landscape architecture, planning, urban design, and those with a particular interest in governance and management of urban open spaces.
