Remaking Planning challenges the common misconception that planning under the Conservative government has been dismantled and abandoned to market forces. This new edition of a very well received text brings the original study up to date with an analysis of how planning in the 1990s has responded to continuing economic restructuring, political fragmentation and social change, and developed a new awareness of uncertainty and risk. The book illustrates how planning remains as a never-ending attempt to reconcile the demands of economic efficiency with those of democratic legitimacy.

Fully revised and thoroughly updated, the Second Edition of Planning and Urban Change provides an accessible yet richly detailed account of British urban planning. Stephen Ward demonstrates how urban planning can be understood through three categories: ideas - urban planning history as the development of theoretical approaches: from radical and utopian beginnings, to the `new right' thinking of the 1980s, and recent interest in green thought and sustainability; policies - urban planning history as an intensely political process, the text explains the complicated relation between planning theory and political practice; and impacts - urban planning history as the divergence of expectation and outcome, each chapter shows how intended impacts have been modified by economic and social forces. This Second Edition features an entirely new chapter on the key policy changes that have occurred under the Major and Blair governments, together with a critical review of current policy trends.

London's Docklands has been described as the largest redevelopment area in Western Europe. This book tells the story of that redevelopment and by doing so examines a number of critical issues concerning the regeneration of urban areas. From the first dock closures in the early 70s, the area has been the subject of various and competing plans. Since 1981, the London Docklands Development Corporation with its market-led approach has been charged with regenerating the area. The ensuing developments and the conflict between local needs and commercial imperatives have ensured London's Docklands has never been far from the public eye. The development of Docklands is placed within the context of the changing nature of inner city and planning policy in the UK. The shifting balance between central and local government, the erosion of local democracy and the increasing emphasis on policies aimed at facilitating the role of private investment is illustrated by the various phases of the redevelopment of the area. The author's detailed account of the LDDC era focuses on the main features of market-led regeneration; the encouragement of private investment through planning, transport and land policies as well as substantial public investment; the record on housing and employment; the impact on the local community; the response of local organisations and councils and the alternatives proposed. As "Doing a Docklands" is becoming increasingly fashionable in other areas of the UK and abroad, this book provide a timely analysis of the Docklands experience and points to some essential lessons and questions. This book will be useful for undergraduate courses on inner-city policy and planning, and also forthose taking courses in urban studies, sociology, housing, urban geography and planning.

China has been growing at over ten per cent annually since 1978, but this has only come to very widespread notice in the past decade. This received wisdom about China has been largely of two types, both of which – more or less – understand China in the context of neoliberalism. The more business- or business studies-oriented literature seems to argue that if China does not adapt the rule of clear and distinct property and contract law – in short, of Western institutions – its economy will stall. The second set of voices is more clearly from the left, arguing that the Chinese economy, and city, is neo-liberal. For them, China does not diverge widely from the Anglo-American model that, from 2008, has brought the world economy to its knees. China Constructing Capitalism takes issue with these analyses. The authors argue that it is not Western neo-liberalism that is constructing the Chinese economy, but instead that China is constructing its own version of capitalism. The two central theses of their argument are: economic life – neo-liberal economic life is individualized and disembedded, while the China model is relational and situated urban change – China has created a form of ‘local state capitalism’ which stands in contrast to neoliberal versions of the city. This book analyses China as a 'risk culture', examining among others Chinese firms and political ties, property development, migrant urbanisms and share trading rooms. It scrutinises the ever-present shadow of the risk-averse (yet uncertainty-creating) state. China Constructing Capitalism is a must-read for social scientists, policy makers and investors.

This book provides an entirely new and authoritative historical introduction to urban planning in Britain from its origins in the 1890s to the current directions of the 1990s and beyond. The author, an acknowledged expert in planning history, makes extensive use of recent research to provide a highly readable, evocatively illustrated and thoroughly comprehensive account. Three basic themes run through the book: ideas, policies and impacts. The first involves an examination of the origins and development of the major aspects of planning thought. Beginning with the early importance of radical and utopian ideas, the book charts the later advocacy of a comprehensive approach in the 1930s and 1940s, the rise and fall of rational ‘scientific’ planning in the 1960s and 1970s, and the more recent influence of ‘new right’ and green ideas. Second, the importance of ideas in shaping policies is discussed, tracing the growth of the planning system and detailing major policy initiatives. Throughout, the intensely political nature of planning is stressed, with frequent reference to the actions of key ministers, civil servants, local politicians and professional planners. Third, there is an overall assessment of the actual impacts of planning, showing how powerful economic and social forces have interacted with planning intentions in the actual patterns of urban change. Often these have subverted planning ideas so that the spatial, economic and social outcomes have been rather different to those originally intended. The book ends with a call for a renewed planning vision for the 21st century, embracing both the new concerns for sustainable development, and planning’s original, though often forgotten, project for radical reform.

Urban change is often difficult because we are dealing with people’s elusive notions of place and perception, time and change. Urban design and planning in a changing urban context so that it remains relevant for people is elusive because the idea of place is embedded in memory and identity – but whose memory and whose identity? This book seeks to understand the urban change dynamic so that the planning of urban places aligns with the dynamic of people’s perception of place. Planning Urban Places examines the premise that building cities is a concrete business surrounded by a shifting context. It discusses the notion of urban design and placemaking from the perspective of place perception and cognitive psychology, place philosophy and human geography. It also considers network theory to help illustrate the self-organising paradigm of small word network theory for planning urban places.

It is the year 1965. Mary Quant introduces the miniskirt to society in her shop in Chelsea; the Dalek-style Post Office Tower is opened; and the Beatles play their last ever live UK tour date. Most importantly, on 1 April, a new system of city government is introduced and London’s thirty-two boroughs are born, revolutionising the capital into the place we know today.New names had to be chosen, councillors elected and policies formed; these boroughs and the Greater London Council between them took control of housing, roads, planning, schools and social services. Half a century on and, though the GLC was abolished in 1986, the boroughs live on, now working alongside a new metropolitan government headed by mayors Ken Livingstone and, since 2008, Boris Johnson.In London’s Boroughs at 50, Tony Travers examines the governing system that developed alongside the growing metropolis and, by identifying the unique path each has taken over the years, tells the fascinating story of how our remarkably diverse boroughs have not only survived, but actively shaped both the city and the lives of its inhabitants in their impressive fifty-year history.
