Engagement during the planning process can be an important element of a development project that reduces planning and commercial risk, deals with conflicts between stakeholders, influences design approaches, secures political support and overall improves speed of determination.

In addition, ensuring communities and associations have their say on proposals within their local area can strengthen understanding and support of an application process.

When engagement is required P&DG has an extensive track record of successfully completed engagement and can offer a choice of solutions from a well proven tool kit which would be central to delivering planning permissions. We can provide consultation packages to deal with all scales of projects.

Our team work closely with clients and consultants to shape bespoke approaches to consultation to enable optimisation of results. Our aim is to deliver conclusive, meaningful, and inclusive consultation which adds value for all involved. Our engagement services can be provided as a standalone service if required.

We can provide the following range of services:

  • Engagement strategy advice
  • Pre-submission presentations to politicians and planners
  • Targeted Consultation
  • Consultation website hosting
  • Exhibitions
  • Workshops
  • Interactive online events
  • Event promotion via press releases and social media
