This chapter looks at an often ignored aspect of participation practices and research – time and temporalities. It uses the concept of critical temporalities to argue that the different sense of time of different communities has an impact on how they understand places and their participation in development processes. It further argues that some communities are more able to align their temporalities with those of policy and participation processes making their engagement more effective. In conclusion it suggests that researchers need a more nuanced understanding of time and temporalities and how these interact with the webs of meaning communities have around places and developments.

Keywords:   time, temporalities, participation, collaborative planning, belonging
