This thesis follows the progress of two controversial development projects in an historic waterfront precinct in the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The thesis examines the public participation processes in these developments and compares the effectiveness of public involvement with that found in a review of literature on public participation in planning. A brief outline of participation in the United States, Great Britain and Australia and its evolution is included. The dilemmas of public participation, including the lack of opportunities for 'real' participation and the perceived benefits for those who actually participate, are highlighted. Some recommendations are provided to guide authorities and participants in applying participation principles to planning proposals.
