The Neglected Places of Practice

Writing in this issue of Planning Theory and Practice (14:1), Robert Beauregard, in his article The Neglected Places of Practice, uses a case study of the siting of a sanitary land-fill to explore how the planning decisions involving the site were scattered across meeting rooms, public auditoria, legislative chambers, consultant offices, legal firms, and even the U.S. Congress.

“Where planning happens affects what is deliberated, who is involved, and the publicity afforded to the deliberations. To this extent, planning’s ability to be democratic depends as much on the array of places across which it is distributed as it does on the range of “voices” that are allowed to be heard.” Planning Theory and Practice , Robert Beauregard, published by Taylor & Francis.
