Community Engagement

Local and National Planning Guidance stipulates that planning applications should be supported by a Statement of Community Involvement.

This document should outline how the general public and stakeholders have been engaged with during the pre-application process.

Foxley Tagg believes that it is crucial that all consultation exercises are as robust and thorough as they can possibly be. Such exercises are essential in respect of raising public awareness, enlisting support, dealing with local concerns and ensuring that local residents are fully informed of future proposals.

Experience outlines that achieving buy-in from local residents is critical and that engaging with the public at an early stage in the development process can help a scheme to evolve and partnership approach to be undertaken.
