Description - Making Space by

Combining theory and empirical studies, this text studies the built environment by examining the private-sector forces responsible for its development and the urban planning systems put in place to influence, guide and manipulate its outcomes. The first part of the book provides a theoretical context for understanding the function of the property development sector and the state's interventions through the medium of urban planning. It analyses the relationship between planning and development, focusing on the increasingly widesoread adoption of more pro-active entrepreneurial planning agendas as a response to a growing disenchantment with traditional regulatory approaches. The second part comprises case studies - from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA and Ireland - which investigate the ways in which urban planning systems in different socio-political contexts has influenced the outcome of the property development process as well as the manner in which such systems have changed in order to enhance their influence.
