This extensively revised edition of Town and Country Planning in the UK retains and enhances its reputation as the bible of British planning. The book now covers the whole of the UK and gives a critical discussion of current issues and problems. It provides an explanation of the nature of planning, the institutions and organisations involved, the plans and other tools used by planners, the system of controlling development and land use change and planning policies pursued. Detailed consideration is given to: * the nature of planning and its historical evolution * central and local government and the EU and other agencies * the framework of plans and other planning instruments * development control * land policy and planning gain * environmental and countryside planning * sustainable development, waste and pollution * heritage and transport planning * urban policies and regeneration * planning, the profession and the public. This thirteenth edition has been completely revised to take into account the many changes to the planning system and policies introduced by the Labour government. The devolution of Scotland and Wales, the new instruments of regional and strategic planning, new area-based urban policy initiatives, innovation in planning for sustainable development and the rapidly expanding role of the European Union in spatial planning and environmental policy are all given comprehensive treatment in the new edition. Each chapter ends with notes on further reading and there is an extensive bibliography and lists of official publications and websites at the end of the book.
