The assessment of socio-economic efficiency of urban planning in modern conditions


  • Shcherbakova, Nadezda


The paper shows the necessity for an assessment of socio-economic efficiency of urban planning in modern conditions. Distinguishing characteristics of the contemporary period of worldwide urban development is described, which is manifested in aggravation of urban socio-economic problems and controversies. Those problems cannot be solved without a system approach, which the author of this paper employed in developing a complex assessment method for the efficiency of socio-economic development of a big city. The paper also gives assessment samples of socio-economic efficiency of development projects for a part of the city territory (Saint Petersburg), carried out by the author.
