The Localism Act has brought into effect Government's intention to increase the importance of consultation within the Planning process.
We work with our clients to establish a positive dialogue with local residents and stakeholders. We use a range of mediums to consult with the community including: Public Exhibitions, Design Workshops, Community Meetings, leafleting, newsletters and written and phone based consultation.
Our programme of consultation culminates in the production of a ‘Statement of Community Involvement.’ This is submitted alongside a planning application and includes details of the consultation undertaken, the feedback received and how this has influenced our client’s proposals.

Discussion forums & design workshops
