Open source architecture and planning

A gold mine in Canada had a problem – its seams were being used up and it did not know where to dig next. The owner published all the mining and geological information they had on the internet and invited comments. He received some brilliant suggestions.

I recommend we do the same with all planning applications – all plans and appraisals are published and comments welcomed – and see what transpires!
