'As Lindblom LJ correctly says in the Foreword, this work is "thoughtful, lucid and comprehensive" and I would commend it to any practitioner's library' Journal of Planning and Environmental Law ‘The sound analysis, range of topics, and extensive legislation and cases make this an essential practitioner’s handbook’ Law Society Gazette Keeping pace with planning law is no easy matter. The mass of primary and secondary legislation in this field, allied to local and national policy and guidance, make this the most intensively regulated area of the law. This comprehensive practitioner’s handbook covers the widest possible range of planning topics in a single volume and is written for planning practitioners in the private and public sectors. This book combines a readily accessible narrative with a substantial body of footnotes for those looking for more detail when it comes to case law and statutory materials. Planning Law: A Practitioner’s Handbook provides the busy planning professional with answers to a whole range of problems which commonly arise in the day-to-day practice. Its advantage lies in the fact that it is a single up-to-date reference book covering a broad range of topics which might otherwise only be found in a number of specialist texts. It also contains sections on village greens, assets of community value, public rights of way, and gypsies and travellers, all of which impact on the realisation of land for planning purposes. The inclusion of these topics will be of particular value to practitioners in the public sector looking for up-to-date guidance in these fields.
