1967 The larger quote: "The late '60s saw a planning boom. There was a national plan, and a second wave of new towns including Milton Keynes, Northampton and Peterborough came into being. Every region had a Regional Economic Planning Council; the south-east strategy proposed to link London to these new towns, and to other major developments at the edge of the region, by discontinuous growth corridors along main railway lines and the motorway network, then in mid-construction. In 1967, the peak year for housing completions in the UK, local planning departments were being reorganised to take on the challenges, staffed by multiskilled young planners who were emerging from fast-expanding planning schools – including new and unconventional ones – with radical new curriculums. In retrospect, this was the high watermark of a belief in a total, centralised, top-down, expertly based – but also benign – planning system. The tide soon retreated with the dying days of the Wilson government – the collapse of the National Plan in 1967 and the weakening and then disappearance of the Department of Economic Affairs – and the vision thus imploded because the implementation mechanisms were lacking."
