Abstract

Urban Planning and the Housing Market is a very timely contribution. An Australian professor of Urban and Regional planning has come together with a professor of Urban Studies from Scotland. What could the result possibly be? The planner and the housing economist aim to bring planning and housing policy back together. In a disciplinarily fragmented world this is not one day too early. So, was it worth the time to read this book? Yes, undoubtedly so. The reviewer suggests this work becomes a standard read to introductory 134 BOOK REVIEWS programmes of architecture, urban and regional planning, housing economy and geography. It provides an example of the importance of knowing one ’ s primary discipline, but also that many useful insights can be produced when disciplines speak with one another around a common cause. The book leaves three recommendations to decision-makers; (1) recruit housing strategists now, if you do not have them yet; (2) provide them with high-quality data and (3) ask for a strategy based on this book. This will make your local community or region successful in the long run.
