    Perhaps we, as planners, need to concentrate less on making great places and more on allowing great places to occur.
    I agree to an extent, the issue being that part of the plan should be to ensure cr*ppy places aren't slapped up and walked away from in such a scheme.

    This editorial argues that one of the main failures of NU was that it never reconciled theory/concepts with the planning processes of local government. Isn't this kind of embarrassing to admit?

    I have been looking around these forums to try to find a dissertation topic to do this year. After reading the first page of this thread i think i'm going to explore the effectiveness of NU principles in Australian communities. A lot of the points raised have been really interesting.
