Conflicting expectations of stakeholders in urban renewal applications may lead to spatial and functionally unsustainable applications. Therefore, urban renewal applications require collaborative planning with their multi-stakeholder and multi-dimensional structure (political, social, and economic). This study aims to create a collaborative land-use planning (CLUP) approach that minimizes the factors arising from the expectations of the stakeholders and that has an adverse effect on the success of the project. The study consists of two stages. In the first stage, the literature is reviewed to create a framework for the CLUP approach. Within this framework, spatial and functional goals are identified for an urban renewal site within the borders of Meram Municipality in the Konya province of Turkey. In the second stage, a survey is conducted with the participation of stakeholders to identify their spatial and functional demands (vision, land-use and building design). Finally, the fitting between the spatial and functional demands of the stakeholders and the spatial and functional goals identified within the framework of the CLUP approach is discussed. As a result of the survey, it was determined that the expectations of the stakeholders regarding the vision, land-use and building design participate and governance processes are incompatible with each other. The expectations of the stakeholders were evaluated within the framework of the CLUP approach, and recommendations were made for a sustainable vision and a pluralistic decision-making, while raising awareness for participation.


Key words: urban renewal, collaborative land use planning (CLUP), governance, participation.
