    Geo-environmental evaluation for urban land-use planning

    A city government wants to transform an area currently being used for agricultural production into urban use. My supervisor and I are required to undertake a suitability assessment of this agricultural area for urban use taking into account the geology of the area (geo-environmental evaluation for urban land-use planning).

    Are there successful case studies out there that we can learn from? Any literature sources - articles, books, manuals, etc?

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    The Literature Classic is Ian McHarg's Design with Nature.

    Another is Frederick Steiner's The Living Landscape: An Ecological Approach to Landscape Planning.
