Providing an overview of rural (spatial) planning for students on planning, geography and related programmes, this book charts the major patterns and processes of rural change affecting the British countryside, its landscape, its communities and its economies in the twentieth century. The authors examine the role of ‘planning’ in shaping rural spaces, not only the statutory ‘comprehensive’ planning that emerged in the post-war period, but also planning and rural programme delivery undertaken by central, regional and local policy agencies. The book is designed to accompany a typical teaching programme in rural planning and considers:
A comprehensive coverage of the forces, processes and outcomes of rural change whilst keeping planning’s influence and role in clear view at all times.

Praise for earlier editions of Surveys in Social Research `This excellent book presents a lucid and comprehensive overview of all the contemporary issues in the development of surveys in social research ... The resources make this book valuable for novices but also a great addition to the library of more experienced researchers.' -Journal of Family Studies `De Vaus helps to demystify survey research by breaking down the process into manageable components. This is perhaps the greatest strength - he encourages the reader to tackle and understand "statistical research" rather than shy away.' -Social Security Journal `... one of the most comprehensive and accessible texts on survey research available.' -The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Sociology `By concentrating on one method and providing a sound working knowledge of how to do good surveys, de Vaus indeed achieves a distinctive balance ...' -Canadian Journal of Sociology
