The chapter offers a broad overview and is structured around a simple outline of each approach with one or more illustrations. The aim is to raise questions and stimulate thinking rather than provide a definitive model. By viewing them through different lenses, the impact of the approaches on different groups of people can be examined.

The biological and social models of disability test the assumptions behind the physical model.
Planning for diversity: policy and planning in a world of difference 20 An alternative to this model nests the economy within society and the wider environment (City of Seattle, 2002). The model says that the environment forms the basis of everything else and if we mess with the environment, this affects us socially and economically. Cynics might interpret it differently and say that it shows government putting the economy at the centre of everything and placing environmental issues at the margins.
In addition, the critique of the plan for Birmingham (England) using the lens of race provides a fresh insight into physical planning in the 1960s in the UK (Chan, 2003). The example of Berlin shows how physical planning has been used to express the city’s identity, through qualitative improvements and in-fill projects, by applying the theory of ‘critical reconstruction’ which allows traces of historical development patterns to become exposed. The example of the South East Queensland plan by Margerum (2002) gives an insight into the application of the collaborative approach.
