The practice of participatory planning is broadening both in scale and scope. However, the ad-hoc use of participatory processes is not likely to improve the quality of local governance in the long run. Participatory processes need to be integrated into the daily practice of planning as an institution. From an institutionalist's perspective, the article examined the role of political support in institutionalizing participatory processes. Based on the comparison between two instances of introducing new participatory processes to highway planning in England and Australia, internal support (i.e. commitment by administrative staff) has more effect than external support (i.e. the backing of stakeholding parties) on the success of institutionalization.
