  3. 3. Stakeholder Participation in Property Development

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Engineering

    Author : Carlos Martínez-Ávila; [2018-08-20]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stakeholder; Participation; property development; Sustainable development;

    Abstract : The traditional representation of urban property as a technical exercise of market analysis, valuation and investment appraisal fails to link urban property development to the general notions of sustainable development and thus the connection to environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainable urban development. Knowledge of the social processes in the production and use of the built environment, specifically in land and property development processes, is vital to understand the complexity of urban development and thus to assist the management of urban development processes.
