COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT 

OUR APPROACH

To ensure that standards of best practice are met, all of our activities are designed to meet the following engagement principles:

PROPORTIONAL
Time and resources should be in proportion to the scale and impact of the project

INCLUSIVE
Consultation should be designed to encourage all members of the community to be heard

GENUINE
Consultation must genuinely influence decision making

CONSISTENT
Care should be taken to avoid confusion and consultation fatigue

TRANSPARENT
Accurate and accessible records must be maintained

ACCOUNTABILITY
Clear demonstration must be given of how consultation and engagement have influenced the design process

TRUST
Only meaningful engagement with the widest possible range of stakeholders will engender trust

EMPOWERMENT
Activities should be developed in partnership with different groups to inform the masterplan and ensure long-term commitment
