Mr Richard Kingston
University of Leeds
|Richard Kingston (Public Participation in Local Decision Making: Evaluating
the Potential of Virtual Decision Making Environments) is currently working on a two
year ESRC funded project as part of the Virtual Society? Research Programme with Steve
Carver, Ian Turton and Andy Evans in the School of Geography at the University of Leeds.
The aim is to investigate ways of putting Geographical Information Systems on the WWW to
increase public participation in environmental decision-making.
Before moving to Leeds, Richard was an undergraduate and postgraduate in the Department of Town and Country Planning at Newcastle University for 8 years studying Town Planning. He embarked on his PhD under the supervision of Dr Chris Brunsdon in 1994. His PhD is concerned with domestic water disconnections in England and Wales, which became a bit of an issue after water privatisation in 1989. The research investigates whether there was a spatial and temporal relationship between domestic water disconnections and dysentery in England and Wales during the early part of the 1990's.
