This article comes in response to that on "personal linkage" which appeared in the editorial of Linkage No. Four. In the section subtitled "Is informality the answer?" it was suggested that informal "personal linkage" could play a valuable part in effecting inter-agency co-ordination, but that such decision making activity inevitably made it less easy for those affected by decisions to hold the decision makers to account. "At what point", it was asked "does publicly beneficial co-ordination end and unhealthy collusion begin?". This article addresses this question by reporting on some recent research into decision making in the Spanish planning process. It concludes that what appeared as "publicly beneficial co-ordination" in Spain ten years ago might well seem like "unhealthy collusion" today; and some of the widely acclaimed local level "initiatives" of recent years may well be seen in a different light five years hence.
