Product Description

Product Description

The twin processes of planning and property development are inextricably linked – it’s not possible to carry out a development strategy without an understanding of the planning process, and equally planners need to know how real estate developers do their job.


This third edition of Urban Planning and Real Estate Development guides students through the procedural and practical aspects of developing land from the point of view of both planner and developer. The planning system is explained, from the increasing emphasis on spatial planning at a regional level down to the detailed perspective of the development control process and the specialist requirements of historic buildings and conservation areas. At the same time the authors explain the entire development process from inception through appraisal, valuation and financing to completion and disposal. This is an invaluable textbook for real estate and planning students, and helps to meet the requirements of the RICS and RTPI Assessment of Professional Competence.

From the Back Cover

This second edition of Urban Planning and Real Estate Development is a comprehensive treatment of the twin processes of planning and development and the only book to bring the two fields together in a single text. Updated to reflect current practice, the case studies included in this text provide a clear understanding of the symbiotic relationship of these activities.

The student is guided through the procedural and practical aspects of developing land. Town planning subject matters is explored from both development control and property development angles. Town planning content deals with planning law and process, planning appeals and specialist areas such as historic buildings, conservation areas, planning obligations and sustainable development. Revisions include new work on urban regeneration, dispute resolution, probity in Local Government, best
value and reforms to the system post 2001 Green Paper.

The development section deals with the whole development process from inception, through appraisal, valuation and finance to disposal of the completed project. There are specific sections dealing with the key issues affecting the retail, office, industrial and residential sectors. Revisions include new work on joint ventures and the private finance initiative, sustainability, PPG3 and PPG11, urban regeneration and design quality.
The book is an invaluable text for all students of planning and real estate and all related courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good, solid textbook 29 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A "must read" for all MSc Real Estate students such as myself. Not one to take on holiday to read on the beach, but it does a good job in providing facts, figures & examples of planning etc.
