Homes, Cities and Neighbourhoods

Given current projections of population and household numbers, housing has become arguably the most important issue in planning. Likewise, planning raises arguably the most important long term issues in housing, given the environmental consequences of urban development and the use of the home. "Homes, Cities and Neighbourhoods" documents the evolution of typical urban landscapes from 1900 to the present with an emphasis on contemporary issues and practice. In doing this, the book examines in detail: the role of planning in the light of different interpretations of social change; quantity and quality in housing production; urban design in relation to housing and residential areas; and finally, the management of neighbourhoods. This book is intended for all those interested in the interaction between planning, housing markets and the urban environment in Britain.
