Building the Foundations of Collaboration: From Housing Development to Community Renewal

Author Published Date Read Publication

Collaborative governance and planning are an improvement on technocratic “top-down” approaches.

They are however, often criticized for exacerbating power imbalances. Other criticisms include failing to be inclusive and impartial and ignoring historical conflict. In this paper, BBHTC researchers investigate how strong foundations for collaborative housing renewal can help community renewal. Before formal stages of collaboration start, a project needs adequate levels of credibility, trust, relationships, community capability, and an appropriate mandate. In practical terms, this means allowing for adequate time and resource budgets. It also requires employing officials who have an appropriate attitude of open-mindedness alongside technical aptitude.
