Public Consultation

Community involvement in the planning process receives greater attention than ever before; in policy,  plan development and the planning application process.   The extent and type of public involvement varies enormously between projects,  depending on the specific location,  proposal complexity,  client requirements and political dynamics.   Careful planning of consultation methodologies assists in maximising resources and delivering consultation at an appropriate level.   GEP Consulting plans and facilitates public consultation strategies that meet client expectations and address the pertinent requirements.

Our approach to stakeholder consultation and management starts with the early identification of stakeholders and to swiftly understand the issues that concern them  –  we then advise on the timing and tactics of public consultation to achieve maximum benefits.   Our approach allows messages to be communicated in a way that creates – among all stakeholders involved in a project – an informed understanding of the issues at stake.
