Housing in the European Countryside
This work developed from a study funded by the Scottish Executive in 2000 that looked at international experiences of affordable housing delivery in rural areas. This brought together researchers from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, France, Norway, Sweden, England, Scotland and Wales. The work revealed the form, nature and variety of problems now being experienced in different parts of Europe, in addition to outlining current policy solutions. There are many facets of housing pressure in rural areas, not all of which are the consequences of economic or market forces. Changing demographics and migration; cultural and societal attitudes towards rural and urban living and property acquisition; land use planning regulatory controls; the difficulty of securing affordable housing provision; a desirability for urban containment and countryside protection; the decline of traditional rural employment; the closure or absence of rural services; social exclusion; and the constant environmental and social pressure placed on rural areas by tourism and economic development, affect the prosperity of rural dwellers and affect rural space and residential property.
