Book Description

An introduction to the problems and practices of planning in London. The authors address the question of what contributions the land-use planning system has made and could make to resolving decrepit public transport, congestion, noise, dirt, crime, poverty, begging, homelessness. They analyse these conflicts in terms of history, jobs, housing, transport and the quality of the environment - and considers future options.
