This chapter examines the planning and development of rural housing in Great Britain under the Labour government. It describes the changing shape of the housing/planning debate from the mid-1990s to 2002/03, when Labour first set out its ‘Communities Plan’. The chapter discusses the planning of the reform in the run-up to the 2004 Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act and the Barker Review of Housing Supply, and the recent revision of policy guidance dealing with planning for housing.
