Space for Community : on the study of resident involvement in neighborhood space management

Pål Castell (Institutionen för arkitektur)
The Sustainable City IV : Urban Regeneration and Sustainability (ISSN 1743-3541). (2006)
[Konferensbidrag, refereegranskat]

The objects of study of this paper are groups of residents that are engaged in gardening and other management tasks in their neighbourhood. Such participation processes are sometimes promoted as a salvation of decline and eroded social capital in marginalised urban communities. This paper summarises experiences from previous Swedish case studies of resident involvement in open space management. It also proposes a revised classification model for the analysis, description and comparison of processes of resident involvement in neighbourhood space management in rental housing areas. The new typology is based on the level of autonomy, the management tasks, the type of contract and the type of compensation.

Nyckelord: participation, community garden, open space management, housing
