Neighbourhood Planning offers a critical analysis of community-based planning in England. A lively examination of planning practices, it sketches the value, rationale, and limits of collaboration within this endeavor, arguing that planning power should shift from the public realm to local communities. The authors question the extent to which movement toward genuine local partnerships-- and the consensus required for them--can be achieved through rescaling, as opposed to greater efforts spent building relationships and generating trust in the communities affected. In doing so, they highlight the potential contribution such planning practices can make to the development of a collaborative democracy.
