A major weakness in this literature concerns the treatment of the state, and especially the local state. The local state is a key component in these local modes of regulation, and will be implicated in any transition from one mode to another. These issues are examined by looking at the changing nature of urban politics in three British "cities': Sheffield, Bracknell, and Camden in inner London. Each chapter is concerned with a different aspect of the same transformative process.
Urban Bias Theory Another theory related to urban development looks into poverty. Advocates of the theory argue that the physical structure for national development favor the urban area. Developments in the urban area further attract poor groups from the countryside. As a consequence of the distorted hierarchy this group of people becomes the informal sector in cities. This perhaps is also true with the rural-urban relationship.
The authors place the policies and practices of the urban development corporations (UDCs) in the wider sociopolitical context of evolving urban policy; present case studies of eight UDCs; and explore the legacies of the UDCs and the evolving framework for urban policy into the millennium.
Urban planning is a technical and political process concerned with the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks. Urban planning deals with physical layout of human settlements
Regulation Theory is a e type of Marxist economic theory. Regulation in this case does not just mean rules and regulations, it means the self-regulation mechanisms of a system. The economy is not something abstract which happens in isolation, it happens in the context of social, cultural, political and other systems. These systems interact with the economy and make it work. Regulation theory therefore sees the intimate interconnections between the economy and society. The peasantry were too closely regulated, controlled and subjugated by the lords of the manor. Rural life was local, people didn't travel very far. In the towns, however, feudal relationships were weaker and trade could flourish.
