Public Engagement

Successful engagement is central to success in all communities, and we all have a well-established role to play in ensuring that this happens.

As a sector, we need to become more vocal in advocating the benefits of growth, establishing strong working relationships with those that can influence decisions and be positive about the public and private sectors coming together to meet the wider community’s needs. Meaningful consultation is now unavoidable under all UK systems, but in many instances we have found it can have a very positive and beneficial impact upon proposals.

Engagement programmes are delivered by teams from all disciplines, from community workshops and exhibitions to liaison with members and political lobbying.
