Course aim

To provide students with an understanding of the drivers of social change and social cohesion and to critically examine local government social planning. Students will learn how the management of urbanism and urbanisation through planning policies and regulations is itself a social process subject to and informing ideological and cultural agendas.

Course content

Students will develop knowledge of sociological theories of difference, inequality, urban society, risk, deviance, community, class, ageing, gender, racism and ethnicity. They will gain knowledge in Federalism and the development and delivery of social welfare policy, the role of local governments in social planning, community development and community capacity building. Students will learn tools about how to engage with diverse communities and undertake analysis of policies such as the provision of social infrastructure, planning for socially balanced communities and “closing the gap”.
