This thesis follows the progress of two controversial development projects in an
historic waterfront precinct in the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The thesis
examines the public participation processes in these developments and compares
the effectiveness of public involvement with that found in a review of literature on
public participation in planning. A brief outline of participation in the United States,
Great Britain and Australia and its evolution is included. The dilemmas of public
participation, including the lack of opportunities for 'real' participation and the
perceived benefits for those who actually participate, are highlighted. Some
recommendations are provided to guide authorities and participants in applying
participation principles to planning proposals.
