Abstract

Related to his published research articles examining statutory consultation processes in private led regeneration projects, Golden was invited to present to the Queen's University Belfast Superdiverse Streets Symposium on development policy in Northern Ireland affecting the quality of public engagement and delivery of proposed regeneration projects in Belfast city centre. Golden presented his primary research including archival records and international precedents for public engagement, spatial mapping, and shared urban space. He discussed his findings about 'comprehensive' development vehicles, and the negative socio-economic and physical impact of red-line planning policy (the policy of creating notional development boundaries around large multi-site/multi-ownership areas of urban neighbourhoods) on placemaking and sustainably diverse urban communities. Golden's findings suggest how a rethinking of the meaning and application of comprehensive development can result in more efficient public-private expenditure, targeting more shared public policy for neighbourhood planning in urban areas of economic deprivation under threat from market-led redevelopment.
