Community Engagement

In the light of recent changes in planning law, which now requires community consultation on proposed developments, Real PR and specialist community consultation company, Streets UK have joined forces to provide an integrated approach to community engagement.

In the same way that the planning process has changed with the requirement for consultation, so has the PR landscape.

The public is discovering and consuming information on their own terms and through an increasing variety of channels. Most importantly, they are sharing information and opinions with each other online,leading to powerful online campaigns resisting developments.

We recognised the impact that these changes in the communication environment would have on the consultation and planning application process and have developed an approach which we believe will lead to positive outcomes.

The same process can be adapted to encourage community engagement on non-planning issues.
