Publication: Тowards consensus between stakeholders with conflicting interests: experiences from urban areas Kalaranna, Tallinn аnd Mezapark, Riga
The case studies examine the conflicts between local communities and developers during the design and adoption of detailed plans for urban areas Mezapark, Riga and Kalaranna, Tallinn. The conflicts are examined via a series of semi-structured interviews with the actors involved in the conflicts, the communities, developers, designers and municipality. Stakeholder opinions are complemented with expert opinions. The case studies aim to discover the causes of conflict during the design and adoption process. The conclusion is, the conflicts arouse due to (1) mutual bias between the stakeholders, (2) inadequate engagement strategy and (3) the lack of flexibility and initiative in the actions of municipality.
