Land for Housing

  • Yvonne Rydin
Part of the Government Beyond the Centre book series (GBC)


One of the main tasks the land use planning system faces is allocating land to residential development and then responding to planning applications for such development. This is a major call on the resources of planning departments. It also meshes with local political agendas set by county and district councillors, concerning homelessness and housing needs in the locality and the pressures arising from the flow of households in and out of the area. The interaction of land markets, housing markets and housebuilding activity, together with the land use planning, determine the extent to which housing policy goals can be met by planning activity. The chapter explores the vexed housing land issue from the perspective of the four alternative economic approaches.
