Abstract

This paper presents results from a licentiate dissertation which has been carried out jointly by me (Lena Eskilsson) and Karin Book. The main purpose of our study was to explain the intraurban relations between built environment, transport structure and development control/power structure with basis in literature and empirical studies. In my paper I will focus on how city structure is influenced by type of development control. I suggest all readers to have a look at Karin Book's paper Intraurban relations between transport and built environment - results from a comparative urban study before reading this paper as she describes the background and the built environment and transport structure of the chosen case study cities.
