Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
The global rhetoric surrounding the role of private markets in the provision of new housing masks a more complex reality in which public policy and private developers are deeply enmeshed, often through processes of spatial planning. This paper discusses the implications of this with the help of a detailed examination of plans for housing development on the edge of England’s growth region (in Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire) during the period 2003-2013. It highlights some of the consequences of pursuing spatial policies that rely on light touch state involvement in a market shaped by the priorities of powerful corporate actors.
