This text has been written upon urban planning activities with a wider view. Towns and cities are places where civilization develops and flourishes further, require a set of effective planning strategies and development approaches. Urban places develop in different contexts and depicts spatilities of socio-political relations of development. Modern urban planning, as it developed and matured in the 'west', mostly focuses on ecological understanding and derive at certain goals to be achieved. In indian context towns and cities have imprints of urban development carried out at different time periods, the contemporary urban planning pays inadequate attention to thses issues. The approach of urban renewal and regeneration to go ahead with is nicely described in this text and it presents a strategic model for urban redevelopment in the inner areas of historic cities.
Master Plan as a rational process of decision-oriented development is limited in scope and shows an inadequacy in addressing socio-culturally diverse issues of old city areas. Therefore, there is a need to opt for an innovative approach which takes into account and consideration the historical and cultural diversity of urban place(s) in the context of Uttar Pradesh and India as well. This volume provides key information on planning and redevelopment process and would be quite useful for various purposes.
