When we promote our larger developments we carry out public consultations with the local community, prior to submission of a planning application. The consultation helps inform the public of our proposals and gives them a better understanding of our proposed developments. The members of our project team are present to listen to any views and suggestions, to learn about local issues and answer any questions or concerns.
Through these consultations local residents’ views and suggestions are gathered and reviewed and, where appropriate, are included in our scheme. A Statement of Community Involvement which details the consultation process and how comments and views have improved the design of the proposed development is then submitted to the Local Planning Authority with our planning application.
On many of our developments we have created community websites to allow residents to keep up to date with proposals for further building and other changes on a regular basis.
