Planning Practice : Critical Perspectives from the UK Paperback / softback

Edited by Jessica Ferm, John Tomaney



Planning Practice: Critical Perspectives from the UK provides the only comprehensive overview of contemporary planning practice in the UK.

Drawing on contributions from leading researchers in the field, it examines the tools, contexts and outcomes of planning practice.

Part I examines planning processes and tools, and the extent to which theory and practice diverge, covering plan-making, Development Management, planning gain, public engagement and place-making.

Part II examines the changing contexts within which planning practice takes place, including privatisation and deregulation, devolution and multi-level governance, increased ethnic and social diversity, growing environmental concerns and the changing nature of commercial real estate.

Part III focuses on how planning practice produces outcomes for the built environment in relation to housing, infrastructure, economic progress, public transport and regeneration.

The book considers what it means to be a reflective practitioner in the modern planning system, the constraints and opportunities that planners face in their daily work, and the ethical and political challenges they must confront.
