Co-designing Bicycle Networks: An Exploration of Public Participation in Beirut
The study explores how collaborative bicycle planning in Beirut might be exercised, and what it might contribute to transport planning. Three participatory workshops were conducted with recent bicycle adopters, focused on developing a preliminary user-informed bicycle network and the criteria to shape. Wider stakeholder interviews gauged perceptions of ideal participation, the workshop’s evaluation as a participatory process, and its contributions to improved planning.

How do planners perceive their role in providing public toilets in London?
An examination of the role planning has played, does play and could play in ensuring adequate public toilet provision in London, especially in light of Policy S6 of the emerging London Plan. Six practising planners are interviewed and the role of local authorities as well as the changing role of planning is reflected upon. Public health is identified as the connection between public toilets and planning.

Participatory planning in the ‘micro’ regeneration of traditional urban villages in South China: Analysing two cases in Guangzhou
In the past 40 years, China has experienced a rapid urbanisation process. Since 2014, to cope with problems such as the lack of land, the government of China has proposed a series of guidelines to promote the inventory mode of urban regeneration and avoid large-scale demolished and construction. Then the concept of micro regeneration has been proposed, aiming at protecting the historical culture and natural ecology and promoting the harmonious development, which is suitable for the regeneration of traditional urban villages. In the context of the new trend, many scholars started to consider participatory planning as the approach for micro regeneration, and some have done experimental practices in the metropolis of China since 2016, and Guangzhou is one of these cities. However, there is a lack of studies to reflect on these practices. To answer 'what effects does participatory planning bring and what factors influence them? ', the thesis summarised four advantages of participatory planning, including exchanging knowledge and mutual learning, increasing the support of the planning process, enhancing the sense of ownership and improving civic capacity, as well as two critiques which are the high cost and the power problem through literature review. Then it comparatively analysed two traditional urban villages which have adopted participatory planning in their micro-regeneration. The results show that participatory planning does have these four advantages. The thesis also found six factors influence the effects, including the participation methods, the trust in organisers, the correspondence between the participation experience and the expectation, the bias of public perception toward the regeneration process, the residents concerning for the collective interest and the support of the government. These results can be applied to a broader public participation field and have practical significance.

Urban Planning and the Protection of Grassroots Music Venues in the London Boroughs of Hackney and the City of London
This research aims to contribute toward a critical understanding of how the planning system currently interacts with GMVs in London and the impact of measures introduced to better protect and support GMVs in the city through the planning system. This is achieved through a comparative analysis of planning policy and its application, along with the experience of individuals actively involved in the grassroots sector of the London Boroughs of Hackney and the City of Westminster, two of the most active areas for live music in the capital.

Urban Planning for the Circular Economy in London: Multi-Scalar Analysis of Small Urban Manufacturing as Sites for Circular Economic Transformation.
Cities are systems of production, consumption, and waste disposal that negatively impact our shared environment, and the current linear economic model of based on extracting raw materials, making single-use products, and disposing large quantities of materials is reaching its physical limitations. The circular economy (CE) has emerged as a tool to transition from a linear economic model where materials are made-used-disposed to a circular model where materials remain at their highest value for as long as possible. The circular economy challenges existing processes of making and linear models of economic growth that privilege systems of globalized mass production and consumption and re-centre localised production processes, broadly termed “urban manufacturing.” This dissertation uses London as a case study for mixedmethods, multi-scalar analysis at the city, borough, and firm level to investigate how cities can utilise the planning system to drive circular economic transformation. The most recent London Plan reflects the growing importance of implementationlevel spatial plans and attention to industry, and industrial land. London’s boroughs translate city-wide policies into placespecific waste management strategies, industrial land protection, and employment efforts to generate social, economic and environmental benefits of CE. London’s manufacturing activities are clustered in boroughs and regions, suggesting economic specialization, which boroughs can work to support. Transitioning to a circular economy requires nuanced understanding of the types of makers present in the city, government intervention to allocate adequate, affordable land for manufacturing activity, and design strategies to ensure manufacturing firms can thrive.

[In]Visible Communities: Planning for immigrant diversity in Barking and Dagenham
As cities have become superdiverse, urban planning must adapt to changes in the use of urban space. In Barking and Dagenham, rapid demographic change in the last two decades due to migration has fuelled community tensions and raised questions about how to ‘integrate’ new demographic groups. This dissertation provides a narrative led analysis of planning for new immigrant diversity in Barking and Dagenham, using seven in-depth-interviews as the primary dataset. This is supplemented by a range of secondary evidence, including policy documents. It finds that integration is not seen as an explicit planning concern by policy makers. However, the relationship between housing and the long-term integration of new immigrant communities is shown to be one of cyclical marginalisation, where the spatial imaginary of the borough is constructed upon binaries of ‘host’ visibility and immigrant invisibility, and in turn further reinforces these binaries through planning.
