Splintering the Public Realm: Using Local Public Space for Corporate Economic Gain?

This paper offers an example of how conflicts between transport, planning policy, and practice can manifest themselves in local communities. The construction of a gated community on a deprived urban peripheral estate in Oxford is discussed. The focus is on the dichotomy between policy statements about promoting social inclusion and the granting of permission to construct a socially-isolating housing development within one of the city’s most deprived neighborhoods.
