Now the Localism Bill has made its way through Parliament, throwing up more questions than answers, the old adage that all planning is political is more true than ever. GL Hearn’s Strategic Communications offer guides our clients through the complexities of local communities, from individuals and the emerging neighbourhood forums, through to council planning committees and right up to the Secretary of State.
We are one of the first commercial property consultancies in the UK to establish a strategic communications team; uniquely we are integrated into the firm's established planning, development and regeneration offer, which allows us to offer both an independent and combined service.
As the planning system becomes increasingly politicised, our approach is to provide an integrated 'Development Planning - Strategic Communications' solution that is robust, comprehensive and, most importantly, driven by your development objectives. A full service communications programme or campaign could typically include a strategic mix of the following:
- Local and national political relations
- Stakeholder profiling and engagement
- Public consultation
- Community campaigning
- Media relations advice and management
