What's in a Nation? Constructing Ethnicity in the British Planning System

This article draws upon research exploring how consultation practices within local planning authorities in England are shaped by the way in which the ideology of the nation constructs ethnicity. It is suggested that false understandings of ethnicity have been reinforced by the development of such consultation within urban planning. Planning authorities continue to address the interests and needs of ethnic minorities in a superficial way, despite good intentions. This article suggests that greater attention should be paid to how the actions of planners are limited by the ideology of a country.
