This chapter examines the ways in which decision-making processes in the property market affect the shape and distribution of investment in different property markets across Great Britain. It identifies the economic and social structures within the wider property market, and explores the way that they interact to produce property-market trends. The chapter evaluates how the capacity of local development agents and business actors to negotiate different responses within wider market structures varies between cities and regions, and examines the terms of engagement of urban policy with local property development in different urban contexts.

Keywords: property market; decision-making processes; investment; Great Britain; social structure; economic structure; urban policy
