Description

These issues are explored through an analysis of three recent strategic planning episodes: The Netherlands Fifth National Policy Document on Spatial Planning, the Regional Development Strategy for Northern Ireland, and the Framework Document for Milan. All are innovative in their contexts in one way or another and provide exemplars of new ways of thinking about space and place, and the role of spatial strategies in contemporary governance contexts.

Yvonne Rydin’s more recent book ‘The Purpose of Planning’, (Policy Press, 2013) covers developments from this period onwards, (which I am currently reading). I found this book easy to read that could be completed in one sitting if need be, it would also be of interest to the lay reader looking to gain more of an insight into the subject without becoming bogged down in too much detail. For these reasons, I am happy to recommend this book.

This book is about the way that the planning system works, what it can do, what it cannot do and how it should evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It looks at a range of issues to unlock the purpose of planning by being positive about the role of planning while remaining realistic about its achievements and potential.

The purpose of planning: Creating sustainable towns and cities (Paperback). Dr. Yvonne Rydin (author). A worthy contribution to the planning literature.

Planning systems have evolved to protect and shape our built and natural environments

Planning systems have evolved to protect and shape our built and natural environments. But what exactly do they do and how do they work? This book answers these questions and many more to help the reader understand the purpose of planning. No current Talk conversations about this book.

Planning is never far from the top of the policy or media agenda, whether this concerns 'garden-grabbing', the location of wind farms or protests about travellers' sites. The operation of the planning system raises strong views, even passions, and is highly political. Planners have to engage with developers working on multi-million pound schemes and the local communities that will be affected by such schemes. And throughout, they have to work in the public interest, delivering on broad policy goals and meeting the needs of vulnerable communities. This book is about the way that the planning system works, what it can do, what it cannot do and how it should evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It looks at a range of issues to unlock the purpose of planning by being positive about the role of planning while remaining realistic about its achievements and potential. Written in a clear and accessible manner, this book will be essential reading for students studying planning in a variety of disciplines and practitioners engaging with the planning system.
