The Short Guide to Town and Country Planning 2nd Edition

Adam Sheppard - Nick Croft - Nick Smith

The fully updated Short Guide to Town and Country Planning provides a concise introductory overview of the practice of planning for those with little or no prior knowledge. This second edition considers who planners are and what they do, showing how planning – as an art, science and system – has evolved as an organised action of the state. The book discusses the planning system, processes, legal constructs and approaches, taking into account the recent regulatory changes within the UK nations.

Restructured to improve readability, it explores the interactions of government and society with the planning system, and the relationship between urban planning, the environment and placemaking. It encourages the reader to adopt a reflective and inquisitive outlook, and features: • case study boxes; • further reading and resources; • guidance on the recent policy and system updates, including those through devolution.
