Realizing multiple spatial policy objectives through public-private partnerships: Propositions for institutional design

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademic

Abstract

Contemporary Dutch planning practice is increasingly characterized by more ‘area-oriented’ approaches, in which planners seek to integrate the (re)development of transport infrastructure with that of the surrounding space. This paper looks into the role of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in integrating transport infrastructure planning and spatial planning, in order to realize more added public value compared to what would be possible with the traditional approach of isolated transport infrastructure planning. In this paper, we discuss literature on public values, institutional design, and PPPs. Based on this discussion, our first conclusion is that a careful institutional design of PPPs may contribute to realizing added value when it stimulates a diverse governance network composition, intensive and diverse governance network interactions, and provides rules that prevent this intensity and diversity from becoming conflictual. Second, we conclude that a careful institutional design of PPPs may contribute when it stimulates that public and private actors address a wide scope of spatial policy objectives, already early in the planning process. Finally, we conclude that the Joint Venture model is most likely to stimulate the diversity in composition, interactions, and scope, and therefore is considered the most promising PPP model for realizing added value in integrated approaches to transport infrastructure planning and spatial planning.
