The Team

We employ those with political backgrounds who understand what makes communities tick.

It is our team’s political experience which enables us to build constructive relationships and to deliver successful project outcomes.

In the past few years the SP Broadway team have been responsible for providing political and community engagement advice helping secure consents and allocations for more than 19,000 homes, with a range of other successful schemes covering more than 1,000,000ft² of employment space, mineral extraction, educational facilities, and a cultural centre.
