I agree with Charles. The "context of development" tends to mediate the "rightness" of a decision. However, it's been my experience that the regulators and the private sector players tend to play leadership roles in the development of citizen consensus regarding planning and project issues. For those of us who have practical experience with public consensus building, there is a marked advantage that accrues to the facilitators and leaders re framing and guiding the discussion, not to mention determining the agendas that are constructed.
