Modern methods of meaningful participation:

Design workshops with members of the local community can take many forms, and are often most effective when interactive and creative, to explore the challenges and opportunities of a site or area and explore how design can help improve the quality of that place for local people and organisations. They are most effectively used early in the planning process, to inform a vision or masterplan.
