Upcycling a planning idea: the return of public interest-led development?

Rooted in what many planners see as the postwar 'golden age' of their discipline, public interest-led development was the model used to build the new towns and comprehensively redevelop existing cities. The market dependent development model that has largely replaced it has resulted in many "missed opportunities" according to the Scottish Government's economic advisers, to bring together local authorities and the development industry in delivering successful places.

In its first year of existence, the Scottish Land Commission has already delivered exciting new research into how the public sector could intervene to improve the operation of the land market and increase the supply of land for new housing. Professionally qualified as a Fellow of both the RTPI and RICS, Land Commissioner Professor David Adams is ideally placed to provide insight into how the public sector can return to driving, not just steering development for people in Scotland.
