Allmendinger, P. and Dunse, N., (2005) Perspectives on the role of UK planning in land and property markets. Working Papers in Real Estate & Planning. 14/05. Working Paper. University of Reading, Reading. pp15.
There is a popular view that land use planning regulations (‘planning’) is hostile to both development and the development industry. Part of the reason for the prominence of this view is the homogenising of the notion of ‘planning’ and its reduction to development control. This paper argues that panning controls in the UK are far more sophisticated and, drawing upon empirical evidence of key property interests proposes a more complex and nuanced view of planning controls that, in large part, has the support of the developers and others.
