A sustainable city is widely recognised as one which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In The Sustainable City V many interrelated aspects of the urban environment from transport and mobility to social exclusions and crime prevention are addressed. The papers included were originally presented at the Fifth International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability and will be of interest to city planners, architects, environmental engineers and all academics, professionals and practitioners working in the wide range of disciplines associated with creating a viable urban environment.

In this book the papers are published under the following topics: Planning, development and management; Environmental management; Cultural heritage issues; Architectural issues; The hidden city; Urban strategies; Sustainable transportation and transport integration; Socio-economic issues; The community and the city; Public safety; Urban rural relationships; Natural resources; Waste management.
