Planning for housing land in the English regions: A critique of household projections and Regional Planning Guidance mechanisms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this paper the authors examine the technical assumptions and measurement errors involved in the population and household projections which constitute the basic ingredient of housing land allocations in England. They also provide an analysis of the advice on housing land provision in the Regional Planning Guidance (RPG) series, picking out similarities and differences in the approach taken by the Secretary of State for the Environment in each region. They conclude with some thoughts on the appropriateness of current mechanisms for the allocation of future housing requirements at the strategic or regional level.
