Participatory planning—in which ordinary citizens are expected, and encouraged, to play a part in the creation of planning and development that will affect them—is championed as a crucial way to improve planning and its outcomes. But it is difficult to manage in the face of an increasingly neo-liberalized planning system. This books uses the experience of Planning Aid England, and its success and failures, to explore the challenges facing participatory planning today.
