* Lansdowne Live Consultation, Participation and Influence

If it is important consideration in professional urban planning, that the people affected by city planning and project decisions should have a serious voice in the process, then I would ask city planners for a list of all changes made in the “Lansdowne live” project plan” as a result of the public consultations held. Were we listened to at all? Did we change anything? Was there ever any intention to honestly listen and respect dissenting views? No significant changes are evident to me, and for sure, I did not detect high levels of agreement by the local residents during the consultations. Quite the opposite in fact.  Did the voice of those whose everyday lives stand to be really affected the most, count at all?    If so, where?????
