Good town and city planning is essential to the future of our society, and to the quality of life we look for today. Yet in the wake of recent government reforms and widespread deregulation, argue Hugh Ellis and Kate Henderson, the English planning system is in crisis. This book details the extent and significance of that crisis as well as makes a clear, straightforward case for why planning is essential. From there, they offer ten evidence-based steps to rebuild the planning system in England, built on policy examples from around the United Kingdom and throughout the world.
