Brief description

This 2 year study contrasted urban policy and practice in the Canadian cities of Montreal and Toronto with the UK. It extended the VivaCity research project (see which  investigated mixed-use city living and working, and urban design and planning in London, Sheffield and Manchester. In Canada, this included assessing city and federal sustainable cities programmes around high density and mixed-use development, ethnic and cultural quarters, and amenity provision such as transport and open space.
