About this book


This book presents a comprehensive review of the development process for recreation facilities, in both the public and private sectors of the economy. Using a sequential model of the development process derived from similar models for other types of property, the author outlines the motives for development, measure of feasibility, methods of calculating financial viability, and performance indicators for establishing the success of a development. Also examined are the role of the statutory planning process and its application in urban and rural areas. The development and planning process is then illustrated with four detailed case studies.
