A connection between specific aspects of mapping evidence prepared in advance of the Town and Country Planning Act of 1947 and the history of the plotlands provides opportunities for critical reflection. First, new mapping evidence demonstrates that the scope and distribution of plotland places were historically of far greater significance than previously thought or documented both in conventional planning theory and in existing plotland-focused research. Second, the sociopolitical agenda which accompanied the production and representation of mapping evidence during the 1930 and 1940s offers opportunity for critical reflection on the consequences and responsibilities of rethinking planning regulations.
