This special issue features some material on two Urban Renewal Bills recently introduced by Parliament. Although Town Planning and Research Group is not a policy making body it is valuable to have some material on the introduced Bills because fundamental issues of planning and democracy are involved. Also enclosed is an analysis of the Bills by the Urban Action Committee which was sent to all Parliamentarians. The Urban Action Committee asked Parliament to adjourn consideration of the Bills until “all interested parties have had adequate time to assess and comment on them”. Also included is an appendix: "A workable Australian Precedent on Public-Participation Planning" which contains some notes on Cr. Paul Ritter's democratic planning procedures.
