— Public Consultation
Stakeholder & local authority meetings
— We shape our cities; thereafter they shape us —
Stakeholder groups, with their diverse opinions and needs, are central to Urban Thinking’s philosophy: they hold the key to successful outcomes for a development project.
At every stage we represent our client’s interests by first engaging with stakeholders, hearing their opinions and understanding their needs. This generates a stream of insights that feed into our strategic recommendations and precisely-targeted actions.
Public consultation is just one major aspect of this process. Urban Thinking puts expertise and effort into ensuring that meetings run efficiently and productively: we coordinate and optimize communication with interest groups, members of the public and opinion-formers; we inform and interact with them while initiating and cultivating valuable relationships, always with a view to furthering our client’s cause.
To build and leverage support for our clients’ projects, Urban Thinking identifies trends and closely monitors the evolution of opinion, responding both sensitively and astutely. Informing all our actions is experience gained through handling stakeholder communications and public relations for some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects.
