The Western Australian Planning Commission, Planning Policy 3.2: "Planning for Aboriginal Communities" provides a framework for the planning of large permanent Aboriginal communities through Community Layout Plans. The policy also provides a basis for negotiation between Aboriginal communities and local government about planning control and fosters the development of cooperative strategies, which aim to minimize the need to use strict regulatory powers. This author proposes that the CLP process is one that should be considered for emulation among historically oppressed communities here in the United States. CLPs are successful due to the fact that they provide direct representation for residents, a formalized system of plan preparation, and are official in nature due to their state authorization. Of specific intrigue is the facilitation of citizen participation that is embedded in the process, and the affect it has on the community and finished product.
