Too often public participation in the development process defaults to the minimum ‘consultation’ approaches.  More meaningful participation throughout the process can help to build trust in new development and provide a foundation for the establishment of long-term stewardship and governance models; key aspects of the Garden City approach.

As part of our New Communities Group programme of events, this seminar will outline some of the key principles underpinning meaningful participation and public empowerment in the planning and delivery of new communities; highlight current best practice models and approaches; and highlight case studies and further information sources. 

This seminar will launch the TCPA practical guide on ‘People, Planning and Power’.

Further details on the programme will follow shortly. 

Price: £50+vat (£60) for TCPA Members; £100+vat (£120) for non-members; FREE for TCPA New Communities Group members.


This seminar is part of the TCPA New Communities Group (NCG) programme of events. The NCG consists of local authorities and development corporations bringing forward large-scale new developments, from Garden City inspired new towns and villages to urban regeneration and extension schemes. Further information on joining the NCG is available here.
