Summary Australia is one of the world’s most urbanised nations, with 74.92% of the population living in 17 major cities of 100,000 people or more. To improve the productivity, liveability and sustainability of Australia’s cities, there is an increasing emphasis in urban management policies on democratic stakeholder participation. In order to obtain a full picture of stakeholders’ concerns efficiently, and manage antagonism, prejudice and conflicts between stakeholders effectively, it is important for participatory decision-making in urban development to be able to select and integrate stakeholder analysis and engagement methods. This paper investigates the characteristics of stakeholder participation approaches in urban development, and proposes criteria for approach selection and integration. The outcome is a multi-criteria mechanism for selecting and integrating approaches to stakeholder participation. This could enable effective, efficient and democratic participation in decision-making process of urban development. Meanwhile, the capacity of Australian state, territory and local governments can be largely enhanced to understand and unpack the complex challenges of urban-ecological conditions, and generate a compromise solution that best represents the preferences of stakeholders.
