Case studies and strategies for community involvement in promoting and preserving public places

Heywood, Philip R. (1996) Case studies and strategies for community involvement in promoting and preserving public places. In National Trust Conference on Urban Conservation, 1996, Old Government House, George Street, Brisbane.

Abstract

Community involvement can be one of the most effective strategies for promoting and preserving public places. Three case studies are presented , indicating the important role played by community organization in preventing commercialization of significant public spaces. They are drawn from central Brisbane, its inner suburbs and Mount Glorious, a nearby mountain area of high landscape value. The lessons that are derived for community involvement are that campaigns follow a general four stage sequence of objectives, conflict, negotiation and resolution . A number of positive approaches are identified including use of the planning system, formation of local voluntary groups, community action and political organization. Techniques are outlined to identify the character and significance of public places based on community values and interpretation; and to incorporate cultural, social and environmental heritage lists in local planning schemes .

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
