Provenance, Ideology and the Public Interest in Planning

Leonie Janssen-Jansen, Greg Lloyd

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


In advanced, capitalist economies planning serves a critical enabling purpose. It protects private property rights, allows for democratic engagement in setting priorities for land policy and seeks to secure the wider public interest in land use and development. Yet it is severely criticised by diverse sets of interests. The chapter argues that society has forgotten the provenance of planning – its origins, its intellectual design. This is exacerbated by the normalisation of neoliberal thinking and the setting of new limits to planning under private property regimes.
