Policy Press

In this chapter, the book’s content is reviewed in relationship to the themes of power, planning and protest. The potential ballot box consequences of changes in the franchise are explored from a public choice perspective with the governmentality idea used to explore how these consequences were mitigated. The politics of the post war numbers game are examined with changes in the class structure related to the post 1970s switch from supply to choice. Contemporary housing politics in England are examined with reference to generation rent, Starter Homes on brownfield sites, planning control, rent regulation, a residualised council house sector, the direction of housing associations to homeownership and the divergent policies persued in Scotland and Wales. The notion of housing as a wicked problem is explored.

Keywords:   power, planning, protest, public choice, governmentality, homeownership, franchise
