Summary

Provides a series of insights into the planning process, introduces the key issues currently facing planning and offers prescriptions for the changes required as we move into the next millenium. Leading experts outline the changing context for land use and environmental policy in Britain and explain why the existing processes and profession of town planning are likely to be unable to provide satisfactory policy responses in the future. Key themes debated include:
* widening the remit of traditional town planning * giving land and buildings a community value
* acting for people rather than simply for the market
* promoting an equalization of environmental conditions and discouragement of motorization
* the need to anticipate long term global trends at the local and national level.
Contributors: Andrew Blowers, Bob Colenutt, Richard Cowell, Bob Evans, Cliff Hague, Peter Hall, Susan Owens, Eric Reade, Yvonne Rydin.
