Just neighbourhoods? Understanding the potential of community-led planning in left behind places.

Project: Research

Project Details


Governments increasingly seek to mobilise communities to shape their own futures and participate in forms of agenda-setting such as community-led planning (CLP). Despite sustained investment in neighbourhood-level policy initiatives, there remains a lack of evidence regarding the ability of CLP to secure social and environmental justice across the UK. To date, no comparative research exists on the dynamics of participation within different planning cultures across the constituent nations and no study has looked at the social and environmental justice credentials of the CLP approaches extant in the UK. The research will add timely evidence on the dynamics of participation in the three forms of CLP initiatives currently operating across the UK: Neighbourhood Plans (England), Local Place Plans (Scotland), and Place Plans (Wales).
