Abstract

Enforcement is one of the most contentious aspects of any planning system. Indeed, much recent academic work has tried to deal with the challenge of facilitating compliance with planning regulations. However, this work has not fully understood the ways in which power is used within the planning system to regulate and control individual behavior. This paper is different—it approaches planning regulation through a Foucaultian lens to focus critical attention on how spaces become governable for planning purposes. It identifies how behavioural norms are established, how citizens become active in their own surveillance and policing, and documents the ways in which public bodies publicise acts of punishment to create compliant subjects.
