A feature in the Society section of The Guardian (p4) looks at the problems facing planners involved in urban regeneration.

Human needs are said to have been sacrificed on the altar of aestheticism in many British towns with planners paying only lip service to 'mixed use' and 'social use' development.

The writer argues that only through dialogue can planners avoid turning cities into war zones and discusses a movement towards 'deliberative democracy' through which people might take greater control over their neighbourhoods and cities.
