Description

This book attempts to tackle questions such as: Did the 1980s and 1990s see the death of planning or has its demise been premature? To what extent were these changed in approach and style by John Major coming into power? Is the legacy of the new right to be found in New Labours shift to the right?

It examines the changes bought about in planning and the environment during the 1980s and 1990s. The complex relationship of power between central, local and national government requires a sensitivity to change that is inclusive rather than doctrinal. This is a book that says as much about the administration, institutions and processes of planning as it does about Mrs Thatchers attempts to change it.
