  7. 7. “Policy reports produced by government planning agencies, and also by consultants for those agencies, are cut from the same clichéd cloth. They are dry as dust. Life’s juices have been squeezed from them. Emotion has been rigorously purged as if there were no such things as joy, tranquillity, anger, resentment, fear, hope, memory, and forgetting, at stake in these analyses.What purposes, whose purposes, do these bloodless stories serve? For one thing, they serve to perpetuate a myth of the objectivity and technical expertise of planners. And in doing so, these documents are nothing short of misleading at best, dishonest at worst, about the kinds of problems and choices we face in cities.” - LEONIE SANDERCOCK (2010) SPACES FOR STORYTELLING IN NEIGHBOURHOOD PLANNING @jenhmanuel

  14. 14. FILMING CHANGING CONVERSATIONS STORY MULTIPLICITY INFLUENCING POLICY “I think we should stay focused on the streetscape on the main street, it’s too busy.”. “No, it’s pointless suggesting that. I know the businesses wouldn’t agree to that, they’d fight against it so it’s pointless to consider it.” SPACES FOR STORYTELLING IN NEIGHBOURHOOD PLANNING @jenhmanuel
  15. 15. FILMING CHANGING CONVERSATIONS STORY MULTIPLICITY INFLUENCING POLICY “We need more bike routes that are safe and we need to encourage people to walk into the town centre. Like the people who work in the centre, a lot of them could walk from home to work but they choose to bring the car”. “We do still need to consider cars and lorries. We need a way for lorries to get into the centre for deliveries. Plus, we said we want to encourage people to come here from further afield so we need to make sure they can come here by car”.

  17. 17. FILMING CHANGING CONVERSATIONS STORY MULTIPLICITY INFLUENCING POLICY P6: We need to be careful about what we’re saying and how we’re saying it. Think about it, if we’re sharing this with people, they’ll think we’ve ignored their neighbourhood. P7: Yes, we have to remember that we’re supposed to be looking at the whole neighbourhood planning boundary. What do we want to include about that? P5: I don’t think we have much information about the rest of the boundary. P7: We don’t so what do we do? People will think we’re too focused on the town centre and we’re neglecting everywhere else.
