This chapter focuses on a range of UK and international examples to highlight best practice in city visioning processes. To do this the chapter begins by tracing the evolution of city visions, and the distinctions we should draw between them, and masterplans. The chapter also examines the evolution of city visions over time and look at some specific examples highlighting the linkages between the process of visioning and the development of strategic urban planning. The quadruple helix framework is crucial to understanding how universities, government, civil society and universities can work together to create long-term city visions. Finally, the chapter examines two very different examples of city visions where foresight has played a major role (Reading 2050 and Newcastle City Futures 2065); what makes a ‘good vision’; and the opportunities and challenges surrounding the development of city visions.
