Abstract

Briefly, this dissertation looks at the background to the development of the Housing Plan system in Scotland and the Housing Strategies and Investment Programmes systems in England and Wales. The objectives behind the establishment of the systems are examined, and also whether, in practice, the systems have achieved these objectives. The dissertation is structured as follows:- Chapter 1 looks at the emergence of the idea of local housing strategies, and examines the numerous interconnected influences on the idea; Chapters 2 and 3 then go on to look more specifically at the emergence of the Housing Plan system in Scotland and the Housing Strategies and Investment Programmes systems in England and Wales, respectively. The different systems are described and various authors' published comments are examined. These two Chapters raise questions about the systems, which are looked at with regard to the three case study authorities in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 compares and evaluates the three different systems in terms of the information from Chapters 2, 3 and 4. Chapter 6 contains the conclusions and recommendations.
