The concluding chapter considers the cross-cutting themes emerging from the range of empirical data about planning reform under New Labour presented in earlier chapters, and refers back to the previous literature and framework set out earlier in the book. It considers what ‘planning at the coalface’ can tellus about the implementation of modernisation agendas, about power and agency and about planning as a profession. This then frames a discussion about planning reform under the Coalition Government, and the possible future roles for the planner and indeed the planning system.
