Topic pack on participatory planning: making participatory planning in local governance happen

This topic pack is a resource for practitioners, students and theorists of participatory planning, and provides an introduction to the literature and contemporary thinking on this theme. It is divided into four sections: Section One discusses ideas about citizenship, participation, and governance. It traces the development of these concepts and finds that the links between citizen participation and good governance are growing stronger. Section Two looks at citizen participation in local governance planning.
