This chapter explores the relationship that young people nurture for open spaces in their neighbourhoods and the value that they attribute to them on an everyday basis. Reflecting on the outputs from engagement projects involving young people in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne, and drawing on the work of Lefebvre and the ‘right to the city’, the chapter develops the concept that in spite of the expert knowledge that these young people cultivate for the spaces they use, this fails to be acknowledged in the planning process. It could be proposed that only through a carefully constructed participation process will young people gain their true right to the city and the spaces within it.

Keywords:   engagement, open spaces, young people, expert knowledge, participation, planning process
