Since March we have been operating in an entirely different way. Our teams like many others across the industry have been working from home, we’ve seen both advantages and disadvantages to this new normal. A principal driver in the vitality of the property and construction industry has been the ability of practices and their client’s to innovate. Clearly the Pandemic has put a stop to events such as public consultations; a key part of the planning process. In response, Ingleton Wood have developed a web based virtual consultation platform and as such can host, set-up and administer community and stakeholder engagement for any project. This allows those impacted by development to access proposals, interact with visualisations, share their comments and digest the details in their own time, and in the comfort of their own home.
This page illustrates what the virtual public consultation will look like and enables you to see what the audience will experience during a virtual public consultation. In this instance we have used an example project to allow you to hover over the boards or video link to open and review the example proposals. Here we have illustrated 4 boards but the platform has the ability for a maximum of 12 boards to be uploaded for more complex applications. It is advised that the boards are read in a clockwise direction to assist in explaining the proposed scheme. The comments box enables the user to share their thoughts on the proposed project. The questionnaire is changeable and once submitted the comments will be sent to a contact email address. A report will be provided once the public consultation period has closed along with analytics of how many users accessed the page.
The Information button explains what a public consultation is, how to use the page and who to contact if problems occur.
Our standard fee for hosting your public consultation event starts at £1,500 + VAT. This price includes all set up costs, administration during the event and post event analysis and reporting.
