Description - Delivering New Homes by Professor Matthew Carmona
This book examines the processes and relationships that underpin the delivery of new homes across the United Kingdom. Its focus, however, is primarily on the land use planning system in England, the way that housing providers engage with that system, and how the processes of engagement are changing or might change in the future. The three key processes - planning, market and social house building - are first dissected and individually explored in a series of opening chapters in Part I of the book. In Part II the processes are brought together to explore the key areas of interaction between planning and the providers of social and market housing by way of the range of tensions that have consistently dogged those interactions.. Together Parts I and II of the book provide a comprehensive analysis of the housing/planning interface, and many of the key debates facing practitioners and policy-makers at the start of the 21st Century. Chapters in Part III are illustrated by extensive case study material and consider approaches based on developing more streamlined, inclusive, integrated and realistic, certain and transparent and positive and proactive approaches to planning.
The final chapter aims to think 'outside of the box' of prevailing policy and practice, to reflect on what the key features of a more responsive planning process might be. In proposing often evolutionary, and sometimes radical proposals for change, this book makes a contribution to finding a better way of delivering the new homes that the nation increasingly needs.
