This chapter focuses on twenty international case studies chosen to illustrate a broad spectrum of places and communities around the world where a charrette process has been used. The case studies demonstrate that charrettes can give people more control over changes to their community and environment. Feelings can often change too – from negative and passive to positive and proactive. The case studies show that communities should not be feared, but welcomed as key participants in planning at any scale, as their input will help deliver what is right and best for the community concerned. The case studies are presented in three sections: Foresight, Vision and Hindsight. Foresight explains the background to the place and why a charrette was decided on. The ‘Planning’ category has a strategic focus, which will impact on future planning policy of the particular local community or local government.
