Course abstract

The study course gives an idea of the role and significance of spatial planning documents - detailed planning and thematic planning in the development of municipal territories.
Students learn the procedure and conditions for developing a detailed plan. As detailed plans are mostly developed for the needs of further construction of territories, which are mainly related to the development of settlements, the study course acquires the general principles of settlement organization, street networking and planning, functional zone planning and construction, improvement of buildings and equipment.
Students also learn the need, procedures and conditions for developing thematic plans.
Methodology and examples of detailed plans and thematic plans are solved in the laboratory works.
