    This paper presents a case study investigation of the applicability
    of The Delphi technique in the urban and regional planning process.
    Postal surveys were employed to generate and assess the issues
    pertaining to tourism and recreation in the A.C.T. and surrounding
    Sub-region of New South Wales.
    Details are provided on the mechanics of running the survey, the
    issues which were identified, criteria for assessing the issues
    and techniques for data analysis.
    An evaluation of the usefulness of the Delphi approach in policymaking
    considers the technique in relation to the stages of the
    planning process and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of
    its application.
