But herein lies the paradox: inter-war planning resulted in residential sprawl, halted by the green belt after the war, but the green belt has failed to contain fringe development. In a sense, the fringe plays host to two planning extremes: green belt on the one hand, and an uncoordinated, splintered and fragmented, brand of planning on the other. The original concept of clear physical boundaries between large cities and their surrounding countryside dates back to the late nineteenth century when Howard introduced his proposal for managing growth in London and maximizing accessibility to adjacent green land (Howard, 2003 ).
Spatial (dis)organization as the product of uncoordinated planning is an important driver making the post-war fringe. The splintered politics of the urban edge noted by Punter (1985) has resulted in responsibility being shunted and shunned. Many statutory undertakers enjoy a greater range of permitted development rights without recourse to local authorities; the same is true of the Ministry of Defence and other Ministries with an interest in the fringe. At the same time, the fringe may fall at the edge of local authority responsibility; there may be no local voters and therefore no voices calling for improvements 34 The making of the rural-urban fringe in environmental quality.

(Nairn, 1955: page unnumbered) However, the idea of the fringe as a hybrid, an amalgamation or a zone of transition with urban uses gradually giving way to rural uses and vice versa, somehow fails to recognize the uniqueness of the urban fringe, or the particular assemblage of processes that make this landscape.
