Abstract: Fast pace of urbanization is often complimented with inefficient urban infrastructure, a mismatch between demand and supply of urban services and poor quality of life. These are few of the driving forces for planners to introduce grass-root level planning process as an approach to facilitate local urban governance. The purpose of the paper is to present a methodical review of literary instances on participatory planning and its successful implementation. The paper includes review of 98 articles and research works that embodies the development of the subject over time. The findings of the study are suggestive that local area planning as a subject has witnessed tremendous change since its inception in 18th century till date, in terms of topics covered and methodologies employed. The paper explicate that despite formal existence of participatory approach to planning since 18th century, the paradigm has not yet achieved its objectives in true sense. There are reported gaps in terms of stakeholder analysis, framework of comprehensive local area planning and its implementation, which offers opportunity to the researchers to explore the subject further.
