dc.description.abstract This thesis is an exploration of suburbia, its past, present and future. It presents an overview of the evolution of this distinct form of human settlement, as well as the opinions and proposals of various international stakeholders and role players with regards to suburban development. A major focus is placed on the public and communal features within this context, which if carefully considered and improved, have the ability to act as a catalyst for the enhancement of community life and the inclusion of a wider range of people within this daily activity.
