    Abstract

    This dissertation is concerned with identifying a method of best practice for consulting stakeholders in the urban development process. The term ‘stakeholder’ is a broad concept that is defined in many different ways. The identification of the correct stakeholders is vital in order to ensure an effective consultation project and a successful regeneration. Stevenage New Town is a dated, 1950’s settlement that is one of the main areas for London commuters to reside. The poor quality urban environment, struggling to compete with newer mixed-use towns, combined with an increasing population, stimulates the need for a regenerated urban centre. This paper asks self-defining stakeholders to assess their involvement within the urban development process and tries to extrapolate what they consider good and bad consultation. The findings of this suggest that all stakeholders, no matter how limited their interests in a development, should be consulted with, although those stakeholders that show a greater interest should have the opportunity of greater involvement in a regeneration scheme such as Stevenage.
