The term denotes the extent of the area that is built-up, and its dispersion in the landscape, in Cited by: 2.

Urban sprawl or suburban sprawl mainly refers to the unrestricted growth in many urban areas of housing, commercial development, and roads over large expanses of land, with little concern for urban planning. In addition to describing a particular form of urbanization, the term also relates to the social and environmental consequences associated with this development. New Urbanism is an urban planning and design movement that began in the United States in the early s. Its goals are to reduce dependence on the car, and to create livable and walkable, neighborhoods with a densely packed array of housing, jobs, and commercial : Amanda Briney.

One of the principal indicators of the phenomenon of urban sprawl is the creation of large urban gaps; as wellFile Size: 1MB.   I am spending this spring at the University of Toronto working on an advanced law degree (called an L.L.M.), and am writing a thesis comparing sprawl in Canada and the United States. Here are a few preliminary findings: *Canada's cities are generally growing, unlike older American cities.
