It is widely recognised as a valuable resource in our towns and cities and it is therefore crucial to understand, create, protect and manage this resource. This Handbook sets the context for green infrastructure as a means to make urban environments more resilient, sustainable, liveable and equitable. Including state-of-the-art reviews that summarise the existing knowledge as well as research findings, this Handbook provides current evidence for the beneficial impact of green infrastructure on health, environmental quality and the economy. It discusses the planning and design of green infrastructure as a strategic network down to the individual features in a neighbourhood and looks at the process of green infrastructure implementation, emphasising the importance of collaboration across multiple professions and sectors. This comprehensive volume operates at multiple spatial scales, from strategic networks at the regional level to individual features in neighbourhoods, with international case studies used throughout to illustrate key examples of good practice. This collection of expert contributions will be invaluable to students and academics in the fields of planning, urban studies and geography.

Town and country planning has never been more important to the UK, nor more prominent in national debate. Planning generates great controversy: whether it’s spending £80m and four years’ inquiry into Heathrow’s Terminal 5, or the 200 proposed wind turbines in the Shetland Isles. On a smaller scale telecoms masts, take-aways, house extensions, and even fences are often the cause of local conflict. Town and Country Planning in the UK has been extensively revised by a new author group. This 15th Edition incorporates the major changes to planning introduced by the coalition government elected in 2010, particularly through the National Planning Policy Framework and associated practice guidance and the Localism Act. It provides a critical discussion of the systems of planning, the procedures for managing development and land use change, and the mechanisms for implementing policy and proposals. It reviews current policy for sustainable development and the associated economic, social and environmental themes relevant to planning in both urban and rural contexts. Contemporary arrangements are explained with reference to their historical development, the influence of the European Union, the roles of central and local government, and developing social and economic demands for land use change. Detailed consideration is given to • the nature of planning and its historical evolution • the role of the EU, central, regional and local government • mechanisms for developing policy, and managing these changes • policies for guiding and delivering housing and economic development • sustainable development principles for planning, including pollution control • the importance of design in planning • conserving the heritage • community engagement in planning The many recent changes to the system are explained in detail – the new national planning policy framework; the impact of the loss of the regional tier in planning and of the insertion of neighbourhood level planning; the transition from development control to development management; the continued and growing importance of environmental matters in planning; community engagement; partnership working; changes to planning gain and the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy; and new initiatives across a number of other themes. Notes on further reading are provided and at the end of the book there is an extensive bibliography, maintaining its reputation as the ‘bible’ of British planning.

Katzengedichte: Old Possums Katzenbuch ist eine Sammlung von Katzengedichten für Kinder und Erwachsene. T.S. Eliott schreibt über den Charakter von Katzen im Allgemeinen sowie über die Art einer jeden einzelnen. Im Buch zu finden sind unter anderem Gedichte über Grimmtiger, Rem Tem Tecker, der nur das macht, was er will und über Rumpelmauser und Rattenschreck, die in der ganzen Stadt für Unordnung sorgen. Dazu wird in den Gedichten erklärt, wie man Katzen zu begrüssen hat oder wie sie heissen. Das Buch enthält nebst den zahlreichen Gedichten viele farbige Illustrationen, welche den Inhalt der Gedichte unterstreichen. Die Texte können Anregungen für Schreibanlässe in der Schule bieten. Nicht alle sind jedoch für Kinder gut verständlich, da die Sprache eher den Erwartungen Erwachsener entspricht. Alles in allem ist Old Possums Katzenbuch aber ein gelungenes Werk, welches auch als Vorlage für das erfolgreiche Musical "Cats" diente. Ab 10 Jahren, ***, Selina Streiff.
