I was delighted to speak at the TCPA’s seminar on Getting Public Participation Right yesterday and to have contributed to the TCPA Practical Guides – Guide 11: People, planning and power which was launched at the event.
My presentation, ‘What constitutes good public participation?’ was a largely theoretical overview of my knowledge as an Associate of The Consultation Institute, having written a book on the subject (Public Consultation and Community Involvement in Planning: a twenty-first century guide, pub. Routledge 2017) and my experience in on and offline consultation. It covers:
- Good principles
- Good processes
- Good methods
- Good legal practice
And will be available on this website soon.
