Originally published in 1984 Planning Urban Europe is a volume of essays reviewing the systems of town and country planning that operate within the member-states of the European Economic Community. The book looks at how the community’s institutions and policies relate to the activity of planning and contributions are written by experts native to the country of study. Each contribution focuses on the scope and style of planning in that country, as opposed to detailed accounts of planning legislation. The book will be of value to practitioners, students and officials wanting to gain an insight into planning elsewhere in Europe.
