Reality and Perspectives of Public Participation in Urban Planning and Design Processes

Matas Cirtautas


Lithuania is not the only country where public contribution to urban planning and urban design processes is highly procedural and formalistic. Unidirectional and inflexible cooperation between participants of urban planning activities is common in various countries. Cross-purposes and conflict situations once boosted emergence of innovative and effective methods for decision making in urban planning processes in developed countries. Now it’s time to learn from these examples and creatively adopt them for purposes of long-term optimization of our national urban planning system.
Paper describes some marginal activities in urban planning and design processes and disputes a growing impact of public participation in development of cities and urban regions.
