chapter  8
Planning, Spatial Structure of Cities and Provision of Infrastructure
Pages 17

To address these issues, this chapter is divided into six sections. The first section provides a brief overview of contemporary urban spatial trends internationally, and their links to access to infrastructure and exclusion. The next section explores the way in which these trends are being shaped by the ‘unbundling’ of infrastructure development, disjointed from spatial planning through forms of privatization, developer-driven growth and urban mega-projects. The third section examines the links and interrelationships between forms of infrastructure provision, spatial organization and access.
