Jim MacKinnon Cnu Denver

  1. 1. Jim Mackinnon From Skara Brae to Sustainable Communities
  2. 13. There is hope in honest error none in the icy perfections of the mere stylist
  3. 19. I ask every Scot to pause and reflect not on the kind of country we are - but on the kind of country we could be - we should be.
  4. 23. David I (1124-1153)– Scotland‘s First National Planner <ul><li>Introduced the feudal </li></ul><ul><li>system </li></ul><ul><li>Established law and </li></ul><ul><li>order </li></ul><ul><li>Reorganised the church </li></ul><ul><li>Promoted local and </li></ul><ul><li>foreign trade </li></ul>
  5. 38. All this stuff about planning and compensation and betterment. Broad vistas and all that. But give to me the eighteenth century alley, where foot-pads lurk, and the harlot plies her trade, and none of this new-fangled planning doctrine
  6. 45. planning – for the layman a submerged, highly technical world surfacing occasionally in lengthy often incomprehensible hearings seen as a triumph not for clarity but the legal profession
  7. 47. The ease with which we are distracted by the petty and trivial, our chronic avoidance of tough decisions, our seeming inability to build a working consensus to tackle any big problem
  8. 50. Where are the conservation areas of tomorrow?... Sam Galbraith Planning Minister November 2000
  9. 58. Plans don’t accomplish anything. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavours succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds.
