Public Participation in Urban Development: The European Experience
The best implemented urban development plans are those that command public support. A key aspect of the process for planning and controlling development is the way that individuals and organizations participate in the decisions made by local planning authorities. This book compares public participation in a selection of European counties. Using the UK, France, and Sweden as examples of alternative approaches to urban planning, the author examines public participation both at the planning and development control stages. Based on interviews with local resident groups, chambers of commerce, developers, and planners, as well as he analysis of planning and development decisions. Barlow argues that the approach to urban planning influences the way that public participation occurs. In the UK, there are more opportunities for the public to intervene in the development process. In France, there is a growing use of legal mechanisms to protest development decisions, although participation in planning remains constrained. In Sweden, participation occurs largely at the planning stage and opportunities to protest are limited once development decisions have been made.
