Town & Country Planning
The journal of the Town & Country Planning Association, available to members of the TCPA. Published monthly, it continues to provide a synthesis of thought provoking debate and astute analysis with feature articles written by expert practitioners, decision makers and academics.
The TCPA’s values are built on a powerful history of utopian and progressive ideas which shaped the Garden City movement and which continue to provide a rich and creative springboard for shaping the future. Founded by Sir Ebenezer Howard in 1899 the TCPA represented a fusion of ideas about social justice, beauty in design, health and wellbeing and economic efficiency advocated by those such as John Ruskin, William Morris and Henry George.
A totally wonderful magazine; everyone interested in real change should read every word of every issue. Articles on agriculture, smallholding, renewable energy, international campaigns and especially UK planning policy.
In a shrunken world, taxed to keep the wheels of industry accelerating, land and its resources are increasingly contested. Six billion people compete to acquire land for a variety of conflicting uses: land for food, for water, for energy, for timber, for carbon sinks, for housing, for wildlife, for recreation, for investment. The politics of land – who owns it, who controls it and who has access to it – is more important than ever, though you might not think so from a superficial reading of government policy and the media. The purpose of this magazine is to focus attention back onto the politics of land.
Combines two previous publications – The Land Is Ours Newsletter, and Chapter 7 News. The Land receives no funding and relies upon subscriptions and donations to survive.
