The Politics and Ideology of Planning

In this chapter and chapter 10, different facets and fields of planning are analysed, in order to give examples of how political and ideological analysis of planning can be undertaken for particular types of planning. This chapter takes a critical look at three facets of planning activity, for heritage, local environmental matters and design quality. It is argued that these are key aspects of British planning, with extensive achievements on each dimension. But the perspective in each field is seen as ideologically conservative, raising the consideration of these facets above a range of social and deep environmental concerns, which can be crowded out by the skewing of the perspective on these considerations. This skewing is reinforced by the play of local and national pressure politics, which gives a high profile to especially heritage and light green issues. This can however vary significantly between localities, depending on local political cultures.
