Planning for Tourism

This text provides an innovative approach to the pedagogy of contemporary planning processes within different cultural contexts globally. It adopts an innovative multi-disciplinary social science approach and through the inclusion of international case studies, considers the extent to which intelligent design has enabled the needs of disabled residents and visitors to have universal access to social spaces and facilities. In incorporating the consideration into the fabric of the book it will encourage the mainstreaming of universal design and accessible tourism, as keystones of planning processes within the C21st.
