I don't disagree, per se. Site Plan approval is an extension of land-use planning in the sense that allows a kind of detailed, site-specific implementation that zoning can't provide alone. I tend to agree that it is a stage where consultation could have an important impact on fine-tuning how an approved development works with its neighbours. The difficulty is devising a mechanism that allows non-experts to weigh in with input, while recognizing that residents tend to have conflicting views as to what is desirable and often view any opportunity for input as an opportunity to obstruct and oppose developments they don't like.
