Review Quotes
Harvey Pritchard, School of the Built Environment, Leeds Beckett University
“An easily accessible way into the planning worlds of our UK nations for someone who is just starting their career in planning. Reasonably compact but also comprehensive, it provides an overview of planning law and practice with an obvious link to the real world. Money worth spending.”
Nick Gallent, head of the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London
“Sheppard and colleagues have produced an extremely accessible ‘planning book that considers planning law and its application.’ Written specifically for students on a variety of built environment courses, this text provides an ideal introduction to the statutory basis of planning practice and decision making whilst unraveling the distinctive legal and policy arrangements that now characterize the devolved parts of the United Kingdom.”
Neil Harris, School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University
“Planning students—and others—can sometimes find it difficult to engage with law texts on planning.The Essential Guide to Planning Law speaks directly to planning students in a clear and concise way, giving them the confidence to engage with more complex legal material. The text also demonstrates experience and insight into what graduate planners need to know about planning, law, and practice.”
