About this book


Urban and Environmental Planning in the UK is a comprehensively revised edition of the author's highly-successful The British Planning System. Like its predecessor it provides an innovative introduction to urban and environmental planning combining comprehensive coverage of institutions and procedures with detailed analysis of the economic and political context of planning, its historical development and of competing theoretical approaches. Extensive use is made throughout of case studies, summary charts and exhibits to bring the subject to life. The structure has been substantially changed and the content largely rewritten to provide more detailed coverage of the planning process and key policy areas and take account of political changes under Major and Blair.
