In the 1970s and 1980s the links with Europe were mainly limited to trading issues and the Common Agricultural Policy.

In the last 50 years, however, agricultural employment has been drastically reduced and 20 COUNTRYSIDE PLANNING: AN INTRODUCTORY MODEL new houses and employment centres have been built so that the countryside is now dominated by people who do not derive their living from the land, but place great store on living and working in a rural environment. With modern telecommunications many more jobs and houses could be transferred to rural areas. If this trend is not to be self defeating and turn the current exurbia into future suburbia, then planners will need to balance the desire for rural settlements against the need to protect the countryside as a natural environment.

Tarrant (1992) has proposed three approaches for assessing the impact of government policies on agriculture and these can be adapted as follows. First, by selecting areas with similar socio-economic and natural environments, but different policies. Second, by simulating what might happen under different policies (the approach favoured by agricultural economists) and comparing this with what actually happened. Third, by examining the production or other patterns that developed and comparing them with the policy predictions.
