Land Use Futures
Foresight undertook a major project on the future of land use in the UK.
The project produced an evidence base which will help government and other policy makers understand whether existing land use patterns and practice are fit for the future.
The project explored
- What land use challenges could the UK face over the next 50 years?
- Will existing structures and mechanisms help us to meet those challenges?
- What opportunities are there to use and manage land differently now so that UK society continues to enjoy a good quality of life in the future?
Foresight worked with leading experts to assemble the latest evidence and research on land use topics.
The project covers the whole spectrum of land use from urban to rural and is sponsored by Defra and CLG.
The project’s findings were published on 26 February 2010.
