Engaging with the right people, in the right way and at the right time
Public consultation is a legal requirement for major development projects, however any scheme that is expected to generate a significant level of local interest, it is likely to be worthwhile for our clients to undertake public engagement. This can help inform the evolution of a scheme, identify matters of relevance to the scheme’s success and enable a response to be made to any concerns at the earliest opportunity.
We are able to organise local exhibitions and other forms of public consultation on your behalf to engage effectively with stakeholders including local politicians, neighbours and local interest groups.
When successfully implemented, community consultation can provide useful input to your planning application and reduce the risk of refusal or delay further down the line.
