The participatory approach includes processes for open communication among all affected parties. The recognition of multiple parties and the perceived gap between government and citizens have stimulated other theoretical approaches, including communicative and collaborative planning (Healey 1996, 1997). This approach draws upon the work of Habermas (1984), Forester (1989) and others. Much attention is devoted to consensusbuilding, co-ordination and communication, and the role of government in promoting such actions as a means of dealing with conflicting stakeholder interests to come to collaborative action.

Notwithstanding this, developers themselves are concerned about the potential delays associated with the requirement to submit an EIS. They are also concerned about cost. Details about costs are difficult to obtain. 0 per cent of a project’s value. Hart (1984) and Wathern (1988) suggest figures of a similar order. Estimates by Coles et al. 000025 to 5 per cent, for EISs in the UK. The UK DETR (1997) suggested £35,000 as an appropriate median figure for the cost of undertaking an EIA under the new regulations.
