It provides a clear explanation of the different elements and concepts which underpin how the planning system works and which are fundamental to the operation of the UK system. It also provides good guidance on further reading. A real assett to anyone wanting to understand the nature of planning in the UK"

MEDIA REVIEWS

If I had to point out a weakness in the book, it would be hard: perhaps the fact that many examples and concepts derive from the town and country planning system in the United Kingdom, which is one of the urban and regional systems that historically has shaped cities and regions in our world...This is a very good book, and will give guidance not only for "upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students in planning" as the series editor writes on the book's cover, but also to the planners that are doing planning and wish to remember exactly why they do planning.

-- Itzhak (Kiki) Aharonovitz
