This paper investigates the use of public–private non-financial compensation in urban planning, aimed at achieving social housing goals. In so doing, it aims: first, to explain the current situation of housing policy in Italy and how it relates to the planning system; second, to explore how non-financial compensatory tools can be included in urban plans and third, to investigate successes and failures of selected case studies, in order to clarify the opportunities and threats of these innovative public–private tools. Drawing from qualitative empirical analysis of three case studies, the paper concludes that public–private non-financial compensatory tools may help to achieve public benefits, including social housing goals; however, it is essential to incorporate them into the ordinary planning instruments, in order to provide them with the appropriate framework through which to control sustainability and urban design quality.
