"Decent Homes for All" reviews the relationship between planning and housing provision over the last hundred years in Britain. The planning system has developed in tandem with housing policy, both of which find their contemporary roots in nineteenth-century urbanism. Whilst the two may have common roots historically, they often display concerns and objectives today that appear contradictory. This book considers these tensions by examining three areas. 'Planning's Legacy' considers the early years of the twentieth century, the onset of suburbia, the provision of modernist visions, and the deregulation of social housing. 'Planning's Problem' considers issues that are currently affecting the planning-housing relationship, including urban containment, inner-city housing, affordable housing, rural housing pressures, and the renaissance for high-rise living. Finally, 'Planning's Future' considers integration and policy issues in more detail and attempts to assess theoretically the relationships between planning and housing provision in the early years of the twenty-first century.
