My column in Planning in 1987, has a contemporary feel in 2020 as issues of mass unemployment and Council cuts come to the fore once again.


A Director of Planning post left unfilled to save money. Doing away with planning. Why I gave up on RTPI Council. The interplay of place and class in labour markets. This column was published in Planning on 6 November 1987 but has resonance in 2020. Thanks are due to the editor of Planning for permission to reproduce the article here.
