What is the best way to structure meaningful "local involvement"?
Political processes have always shaped the built environment. Under the new Planning Policy Statement 1, a "Statement of Local Involvement" is required for most new and regeneration projects. How can this new requirement best be addressed, and how can a potential liability be converted into an asset, helping to create a stronger and more successful project? What are the approaches available, and their advantages and disadvantages?
Led by Paul Murrain, co-author of Responsive Environments, and a pioneer of the public participation process Enquiry by Design, and joined by other leaders in the field, including sociologist Ken Worpole, RIBA urban design champion John Thompson, Planning for Real proponent Nick Wates, and Placemaking advocate Rob Cowans, Jane Samuels and Removing Unfreedoms project, this masterclass will examine the broader challenges and opportunities of public participation, using some of the toughest case studies in the most complex political environments to illustrate how local concerns and bureaucratic disorder can be replaced with a shared vision of development, and a coherent basis for better design.
