Some popular assumptions about countryside planning

Curry, Nigel


Nigel Curry


The “no-development” ethic in the countryside came about for economic reasons rather than today’s concerns which are mainly about environmental quality. This paper challenges the assumptions behind countryside planning and argues the case for imposing economic logic on development decisions to allow more development which would reverse the downward spiral in social conditions and community and environmental quality.
