Curry, Nigel R (2012) Community Participation in Spatial Planning: Exploring Relationships between Professional and Lay Stakeholders. Local Government Studies, 38 (3). pp. 345-366. ISSN 0300-3930Full text not available from this repository.
The literature that explores relationships between lay and professional stakeholders in community participation generally suggests that professionals perceive five main difficulties in working with lay people: it is unnecessary within democracies; lay people lack expertise; they are not representative; there is commonly a lack of trust, and decision-making is made more complex. In respect of spatial planning in South West England, from survey evidence these difficulties are not so apparent except in respect of complex decision-making. It is likely that the variation between the literature and the survey is influenced by the longer heritage of community participation in the spatial planning process in England, than in most other local authority services.
