... People do know what they want. ... Share the vision. ... Plans belong to the People. ... Talk with individuals, those who are not part of an organisation. ... There is no such person as "The Average Person", each is a Person in their own right with their own aspirations. .;.The involvement of the People at the very outset of a planning proposal will ensure that the proposal will not become an issue. ... People need causes. ... Workshop involvement with the interested is more effective than talkathons by experts. ... No planning proposal should be put to paper until every interested person and group has been heard; have no preconceptions. Having said that, I am hopeful that a new age of planning is here and that the Planners, the People and each level of Government can form a Planning Partnership which will develop our City with its own unique style and qualities which will be recognisably Darwin and, proudly, our own.
