Community Engagement

Meaningful community engagement in the planning system can:

  • Give people a voice and build their skills, confidence and capacity to influence decisions affecting their local area.
  • Improve the quality, appropriateness and relevance of new development.
  • Increase pride in and sense of ownership of the built environment.
  • Foster collaboration between developers, planners and communities, resulting in better schemes.
  • Improve the quality and relevance of planning policy by taking local knowledge into account.
  • Reduce conflict, speed up and reduce costs in the development management process.
