Neglected Places of Practice

Neglected Places of Practice

(p.76) Four Neglected Places of Practice
Planning Matter

Robert A. Beauregard

University of Chicago Press

This chapter situates the micro-politics of planning in the places in which practice occurs. Using a case study of the attempted siting of a sanitary landfill in Iowa (USA), it argues that the places of practice influence the deliberations that occur there as well as who participates and the transparency of the process. The chapter ends with a discussion of place, site, and context and their importance for thinking about the way in which planning practice is assembled.

Keywords:   planning practice, places, micro-politics, assemblages
