Description - Planning by Consent by Philip Booth
The British system of universal development control celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1997. Remarkably, the system has survived more or less intact but the experience of the 1980s has left large questions unanswered about the relevance and effectiveness of the system. This book traces the history of the development control system in Britain from early modern times to the present day. It also looks at the tension between private interest and public control, and between the freedom of local authorities to decide and their accountability for decisions taken. It looks at the rights of third parties and the development of an appropriate administration, and concludes with a reflection on the future for development control in the next century.
