Questions about the supply of housing in Britain's countrysides have been the focus of this book. It discussed the quality, location and the connection of rural housing question with the state of rural economies and rural society. It has also discussed some of the key pressures on housing resources emanating from patterns of retirement, second home purchasing and migration patterns to and from rural areas. It has also discussed how the representations of the countryside find expression in attitudes towards development and in planning's treatment of different rural areas: what are society's expectations of rural land, who can use it, and for what purpose? This final chapter provides reflections on the answers to the rural housing question that emerged from the discussions of the previous chapters. It also offers broad conclusions that might be turned into a more detailed policy.
