Social and economic drivers of land use change in the British space economy

Pratt, A.C. (2009). Social and economic drivers of land use change in the British space economy. Land Use Policy, 26(S1), S109-S114. doi: 10.1016/j.landusepol.2009.09.006


This paper considers factors influencing change that will affect future working patterns and practices, leisure time, employment levels and influential sectors within a 50-year time horizon (2010–2060). The main section of this paper sketches out the drivers (demographics, technology, industry and employment)and their implications for the future of work, employment, and leisure, whilst the next section draws together the implications and underlines the likely impact on land use. Finally, some more radical and non-normative, non-trend, events are introduced as a test of the robustness of the discussion.
