Abstract

As the pubic sector utilizes the development approvals process to channel transportation costs associated with new projects to the private sector, claims as to differential treatment in the handling of development applications have surfaced. Consequences of inequity not only fall on developers, but also adversely affect municipalities. The purpose of this study was to investigate the claim of inequity and report findings of its nature. A thorough compilation of land use, legal and planning documents rendered a project set of commercial developments well supported by authority. Analyses were conducted on results from projects in Kingston, Ontario where transportation consequences of each were probed by types, scales, values, applicants, etc., in an attempt to discover whether there was differential treatment, and if so, along what lines. The findings refuted the claim of differential treatment in Kingston. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)Dept. of Geography.
