|Authors:||Ali, Dexter Joseph Roger|

|Abstract:||<p>This research paper allows a description of neighbourhood planning in Hamilton. The main objective is to observe and describe how neighbourhood plans develop using the Durand Neighbourhood Plan as a benchmark. Information for the study was obtained by interviewing selected participants through a checklist of questions pertaining to Neighbourhood Planning. The Durand Neighbourhood Newsletters were used to see the importance of public participation in the formulation and implementation ofneighbourhood plans. In addition, sample characteristics from the 1986 Census reports were used to see if Durand can be used as a model to plan similar neighbourhoods in the Central Area of Hamilton. The results show that Durand can be used as a model to plan similar neighbourhoods, but public participation plays a key role in neighbourhood planning. The significance of this research paper is to provide a local example of the importance of public participation to neighbourhood planning. Thus, this study could be used to further enhance future planning studies.</p>|
