Community Consultation


The new Scottish planning system requires that a programme of community consultation is carries out prior to the submission of an application for “major” developments.  Some clients, particularly in the housebuilder and retail sectors, found that community consultation significantly improved the ease with which planning permissions were obtained even when it was not required by statute.

John has organised and managed a range of community consultation events, both statutory and non-statutory, usually advising a client project team which often includes architects, PR consultants, and other environmental consultants; to give visitors the widest range of information on the development.
