Previously knowledge about housing has been available only from widely disparate sources focused on the traditional disciplines of construction, design, building control, planning, economics, sociology and psychology, leaving scope for a fresh holistic overview of how the separate inputs into the housing development process actually interact in practice. Housing Development brings together information on housing production, housing provision and the housing environment, highlighting the theoretical and policy contexts in which housing development takes place as an integrated process. This user-friendly volume includes learning objectives, indicative educational assignments, suggested topics for dissertations and theses, priorities for commissioned research, annotated guides to further reading, a glossary of terms, an extensive index, and details of relevant websites. A selection of maps, diagrams, tables and photographs are included in support of the ideas discussed.
