This chapter explores how planning reform can be conceptualised and the nature of broad changes from government to governance. Contextualising planning reform as part of a broader frame of public sector modernization, the way this can be understood through the lenses of neoliberalism and the New Public Management, New Labour’s Third Way and the Coalition’s Localism, and governance are all explored. The chapter concludes by speculating as to whether planners have been collaborators or resisters to the neoliberal reform of the state.

Keywords:   Planning reform, Neoliberalism, New public management, Third Way, Localism, Governance
