PLANNING FOR ALL

PLANNING FOR ALL

Support free participation, equal access and equal voice for all in planning processes.

Why is this important?

The planning process governs many aspects of our daily life and daily natural and built-in landscape with profound, sometimes irreversible social and environmental transformational impacts for past, present and future generations. As such, it should therefore be entirely democratic in nature.

However, planning processes in their current forms are profoundly exclusionary. The right to meaningful participation is most unevenly granted according to financial/material/social resources and/or determined qualifications. In other words, citizens who lack such resources and/or qualifications find themselves de facto excluded from the process of making essential decisions about their lives and those of future generations.

Please sign the present petition if you would like to see planning processes rethought and reformed from scratch based on extensive nationwide public consultation and securing the following minimum requirements:

• FREE PARTICIPATION FOR ALL AT ALL STAGES OF THE PLANNING PROCESS
• EQUAL ACCESS FOR ALL AT ALL STAGES OF THE PLANNING PROCESS
• EQUAL VOICE FOR ALL AT ALL STAGES OF THE PLANNING PROCESS

Many thanks from All People and All Nature!

Reasons for signing

  • I have been extremely shocked by the lack of democratic engagement in the planning process I took part in. The great majority of people remain unheard and totally invisible. It is injustice at it's highest level. Who would have thought so in a democratic country? We need to fight for change now.
