INTEGRATED for ease of use.
CAR SHARING and CAR CLUBS
PARK and RIDE
trying to encourage people to use
publice transport and rely less on cars.
often the most difficult to do.
by asking residents and locals what they want you are more likely to provide services they need and these services will be widely used and last longer - this makes them more sustainable
Sites like the old hat factory in Denton which is now Crown Point North and the Etihad stadium site are old brownfield sites often found in the inner city. Inner cities have a large number of brownfield and old factory sites that can be redeveloped and regenerated.
Once developed the new areas often attract professional people who work in the CBD - this is the GENTRIFICATION of an area.

CASE STUDIES for SUSTAINABLE CITIES
Curitiba Brazil city in south of Brazil with 1.8 million people
wants to improve environment, reduce waste, reduce pollution and improve the quality of life for people.
REDUCE CAR USE
great bus system used by 1.4 million people per day
pre pay staions - bus only lanes
cheap fares benefit poorer residents who tend to live on
the edge of city.
200 Km of bike paths in the city
SO POPULAR car use is 25% lower than rest of Brazil Curitiba has some of the lowest levels of air pollution.
PLENTY OF OPEN SPACE - green space up from 0.5m per person
in 1950 to 52 m2 in 1990. 1000 parks added to city in areas prone to flooding so no serious damage if it floods.
Good recycling schemes 70% of rubbish recycled
Residents given food and bus tickets for recycling own waste in areas where streets are too narrow for weekly rubbish collection.
reduction in car use means less pollution and less use of fossil fuels
conserves the natural environment people in the future will be able to use them
high levels of recycling means fewer resources are used and less waste goes to landfill
More resources available for people in the future
Curitiba is a nice place to live 99% of residents said they were happy with their town
CURITIBA HAS BEEN A SUCCESS STORY
ISSUES - Housing

NDC - New Deal for Communities launched by the Labour Gov in 1999 as
