PLANNING FOR ALL
Support free participation, equitable access and equitable 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
• EQUITABLE ACCESS FOR ALL AT ALL STAGES OF THE PLANNING PROCESS
• EQUITABLE VOICE FOR ALL AT ALL STAGES OF THE PLANNING PROCESS
Many thanks from All People and All Nature!
