This dissertation was written in autum 2010 and spring 2011. As research took much more time than expected (as usually happens), I was not able to built up big argument. I think that this was a good lesson for me, as I realised that I indeed have a problem with finishing up my projects, in general, and rather enjoy the state of reseach and creation. In this case problem came partly from outside: my interview source banned me from using the interview, just few days before hand-in, so I had to find new references to my arguments.

“The disserataiton draws together three interesting and relevant strands of participatory issues and opportunities in public space. Looking in detail at Canterbury, privatisation and forces for improvement and discussion is a good structure and each area uses good examples and is reasonably coherently assembled and comprehended.”
