Summary

Are you concerned about the state of current housing provision? Worried about further decline in the years ahead? Decent Homes for All addresses fundamental questions about the current housing crisis; examining its history and evolution.

The first text on the housing-planning interface, it explores the relationship between planning and housing supply, focusing on housing supply, the quality and form of residential development, affordability and sustainability and the changing nature of planning itself. The questions covered include:

  • Why have we moved away from state housing provision?
  • How might the current crisis in housing affordability be addressed through planning policy?
  • Why has recent debate broadened to encompass the idea of ‘sustainable communities’?
  • How will we deliver quality, affordable housing in the future?
  • What role should the planning system play in delivering decent homes in the years ahead?

This comprehensive narrative provides students, planners and researchers with a valuable account of the evolving relationship between planning and housing to aid contextual understanding and suggest how current issues might evolve in the future.
