    Abstract

    This paper considers the implications for land use planning of the social reconstruction of antisocial behaviour, drawing upon the particular legislative and policy context of the UK, together with a synthesis of the wider literature. It considers the complexity and diversity of interpretations of 'antisocial' behaviour and the limitations and underlying assumptions of an environmentally deterministic approach. It argues that a social constructivist analytical framework for approaching antisocial behaviour would better serve to provide a more holistic and enlightened understanding to inform planning theory and practice.
