The advantages of community engagement

Community engagement can help to identify issues early on in the planning process and reduce conflict at the application stage.  The ideas generated can help to optimise the benefits of development projects and enhance the reputation of the development community. 

Steve Tapscott, Senior Planner at Chapman Lily Planning recently hosted a public exhibition relating to the proposed redevelopment of 27-31 West Quay Road in Poole.  Reflecting on the exhibition, Steve commented: ‘It was good to enter into a dialogue with local residents, understand what really matters to them and offer points of clarification.  A wide variety of views were expressed and these will help to shape the form and content of the planning application.  It was pleasing to see that some X% of those who completed the questionnaire found the exhibition informative’.
