Great British Plans comes at a timely moment in the story of British planning. As the country faces continuing division over large-scale planning projects of national significance, from London’s airport expansion, to the high-speed rail network HS2, and the so-called ‘Northern Powerhouse’, this book asks whether the British are any good at strategic planning. Andrew Hoolachan reviews this book by Adam Wray.
