This paper looks at how local government in New Zealand is working to improve the participation of residents in local decision-making. The research looked at three communities where community planning had been used and talked to Council and community members about their experiences. Using a case study approach, the information gathered was used to build a picture of possible sources of success or failure in using community planning.
