Caring For Place
Community Development in Rural England Patsy Healey, Newcastle University, UK

Series: RTPI Library Series

This book draws on preeminent planning theorist Patsy Healey's personal experiences as a resident of a small rural town in England, to explore what place and community mean in a particular context, and how different initiatives struggle to get a stake in the wider governance relations while maintaining their own focus and ways of working. Through the lens of Wooler and Glendale as a micro-society, the book centers on a community experiencing an economic and demographic transition. Overall, it seeks to enrich academic and policy discussion about how the relations between formal government and civil society energy could evolve in more productive and progressive directions.
