Social Town Planning By Clara H Greed. Many issues – such as access for the disabled, childcare facilities, environmental matters and ethnic minority issues – are excluded from town planning considerations by planning authorities. This book introduces the concept of ‘social town planning’ in order to integrate planning policy and practices with the cultural and social issues of the people they are planning for. Social Town Planning By Clara H Greed The first part of the book provides background on the development of a social dimension to the predominantly physical, land-use based, British town planning Social Town Planning planning topics in respect of gender, race, age and disability, cross-linked to the implications for mainstream policy areas such as housing, rural planning and transport. The next part discusses the likely influence of a range of global and European policy initiatives and organisations in changing the agenda of British town planning. Planning for healthy cities, sustainability, social cohesion and equity are discussed. The book concludes with a look at the problem’ from a cultural perspective, arguing that a great weakness in the British system, resulting in ugly and impractical urban design, has been the lack of concern among planners with social activities and cultural diversity. Alternative, more culturally inclusive approaches to planning, such as urban time planning, are presented which might transcend the social/ spatial dichotomy. Social Town Planning By Clara H Greed

Concluding that the process of planning must change, the authors argue that the culture and composition of the planning profession itself must change, particularly to be more representative and reflective of the people they are ‘planning for’, in terms of gender, race and minority composition. Social Town Planning By Clara H Greed
