This project was undertaken by ten students from the Master of Urban and Regional Planning program at Queen’s University of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, as part of their capstone project course. These students travelled to Auroville, India to complete a project that addressed a local planning and development concern. The purpose of this report is to provide the Township of Auroville with a Community Participation Framework that will allow for a consistent and transparent collaborative planning process. The framework is based on a set of guiding principles and it functions as a step-by-step guide to involving the community in the planning and development process. A pilot study, using a local planning issue, was conducted to test the framework. Findings from the pilot study resulted in modifications to the framework and recommendations concerning both the pilot study topic and participation more generally.
