Following on the argument of the previous chapter, this chapter makes the central case that the planning system should also focus on areas where lower levels of growth and income persist. This is planning that is pro-poor, protecting the position of the most deprived communities in the face of a planning system overwhelmingly oriented towards fostering economic growth and attracting private sector development. It develops a critique of the existing recommendations for orienting planning towards more vulnerable groups through more participatory planning, including the paradigm of collaborative planning. While recognising that participation is an important element in planning practice, it has significant limitations. Institutional reforms are required as explored in subsequent chapters.
