Abstract

Current methods for consulting the public on urban planning proposals fail to provide an inclusive forum to all socio-demographics. Face to face consultations provide a means for those with time and mobility to attend discussions, workshops and exhibitions but not all members of the local community are available or have time to attend when these take place due to work and family commitments. Surveys provide a means to reach a wider audience but without mediation from an expert to explain the technical language from masterplans in layman's terms there lies a knowledge gap making it difficult for the general public to understand certain design decisions. This PhD study aims to understand how 3D Building Information Models (BIM) and associated data can be visualised to communicate building proposals during planning consultation activities and explores how BIM may be used to address the knowledge gap through an online planning consultation platform.
