Understanding Town Planning helps communities, companies, and politicians to decide the best plan for residential urban buildings and infrastructures. Town planning includes the planning and design of the landscapes of urban and residential new buildings, roads, parks, and other important infrastructures convenient for the people who live there.

Proper town planning is the key to an ideal city. In 2021, urban areas will house 56.61% of the world's population; by 2050, that figure is expected to climb to 68%. Furthermore, for the first time, more people lived in urban areas than in rural areas in 2007. In 1950, urban areas housed 30% of the world's population. For instance, 3.42 billion people live in rural areas worldwide as of 2021, compared to 4.46 billion in urban areas.

These figures indicate that as the demand for modern industry grows, so will the number of cities. If not correctly designed, this can be disastrous for both city and rural residents. As a result, one of the most significant parts of contemporary civilisation is town planning. This Town Planning course will expose you to the fundamentals of forming and directing the physical growth of a town.

What are CPD hours/points?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
