August 2021 Update
We provide communications and PR assistance on development projects at all stages of the planning and construction process.
You could be:
- Promoting a site for allocation in a district council’s Local Plan
- Preparing to submit a planning application for the first time
- Submitting a revised application following refusal of previous proposals
- Submitting a ‘reserved matters’ application after ‘outline’ approval
- Preparing for determination by a council’s Planning Committee
- Preparing to begin construction once you have consent
In all these situations there will be people who you ought to be consulting with – whether it’s simply explaining your proposals to local councillors, or hearing the views of local residents before you submit a planning application for the first (or second) time.
We can organise and manage this process for you from start to finish:
Political and community engagement
- Political briefing meetings
- Community stakeholder meetings
- Community liaison groups
- Community workshops
- Public exhibitions
- ‘Drop-in’ sessions

Our ability to build valuable relationships, based on a foundation of respect and forged through face-to-face contact, enables us to deliver success both for our clients and for the communities in which we work.
