This important text book is the first to be written about infrastructure planning in Britain. Written by an experienced author, the book reviews the rapid rise in the use of infrastructure delivery planning at national and neighbourhood level. The key components of infrastructure delivery are set out and analysed, including the development of government policy, planning regulation, funding, environmental processes and legal challenges. Situating this within international, European and domestic economic, territorial and social policy, the author draws on a variety of practical examples to discuss the role of different institutions in the delivery of infrastructure and to illustrate the various issues and merits of each approach. This is a key text for those engaged in the study and application of infrastructure delivery planning including planners, engineers, public administrators and policy advisers.
“Presenting fresh ways of seeing infrastructure fields, and giving clear pointers on what to do, this book is full of wise analysis and best practice advice.” Tim Marshall, Oxford Brookes University
"Offers a compelling insight into infrastructure planning at a range of spatial scales and will be a valuable read for those involved with its promotion, design and delivery." Nicholas Smith, University of the West of England
