Making sure the local community around your development site has been consulted properly and demonstrating this to your planning authority has never been more important.
It’s been even more challenging with social distancing!
Identifying all key stakeholders, managing communications events and channels, making sure everyone has the opportunity to engage and the feedback is recorded properly takes time and method.
As the leading experts in PR and community consultation for sustainable developments in Sussex, we can make sure that your process and your Statement of Community Involvement helps you win planning approval.
We have huge experience in helping developers, construction and utilities companies and public sector organisations in the South East, Sussex and Brighton to get their message across and integrate feedback from their public audience into their plans. We have some unique techniques which are above and beyond the best of any Government, local government … or public … expectations. We can help you to achieve the best for your business and the community in which you work – and provide the documentation you need at the end of it all to prove it!
We advise on public relations strategy; research and develop consultation lists; develop messages and imagery to present the proposition to its various audiences; create appropriate public consultation activities including questionnaires, presentations, ‘drop-ins’, discussion groups, meetings with interest groups, events and public exhibitions; create programmes of councillor lobbying and consultation activities; draft statements of community involvement; provide support on production of materials and websites; manage on-going media relations; and provide a contact point for questions from members of the public.
