Description - Town Planning into the 21st Century by Andy Blowers
This book examines the current position of planning and its likely development. Outlining the changing context for landuse and environmental policy in Britain, leading experts in the field examine the reasons why the existing processes and profession of town planning are likely to be unable to provide satisfactory policy responses in the future. Key themes debated include: widening the remit of traditional town planning through more strategic approaches and new integrative environmental planning, giving land and buildings a community value, acting for people rather than simply for the market; promoting an equalisation of environmental conditions and discouragement of motorisation; and the need to anticipate long term, global trends at both national and local levels. Bringing together the key issues facing planning today, this book presents an important agenda for planning into the 21st Century.
