Criteria for inclusion:
In compiling this information we have had to make many decisions on terminology. Different people have used the same term to mean different things and different terms to mean the same thing. We have tried to use the simplest and most explanatory term wherever possible and avoid jargon.
But do not get hung up on terminology. If your ‘design workshop’ is more likely to be successful if you call it an ‘interactive planning meeting’, that is what you should call it. Generally, though, using simple and direct language is likely to be most successful in sustaining interest and enthusiasm
The planning terminology is mostly based on the system in England. In compiling it in 2011 we would like to acknowledge inspiration from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, Community Energy Online, Planning Advisory Service and Planning Aid.
