Community engagement and political liaison on behalf of the bank’s property division

Social Communications’ Consult team has worked with RBS’ property division West Register for over two years. We provide strategic advice on community consultation and political engagement and have achieved a 100% record on committee approvals so far.

The four completed projects have ranged in size and make-up from single retail schemes through to more complex mixed use projects.

Garforth

A supermarket proposal on an edge of town centre site, our team worked with the client on a programme of community engagement including a public exhibition, neighbour visits and trader meetings. Local ward member backing as well as over 100 letters of support submitted in favour of the planning application helped to secure a positive decision at committee.

Whitehills

Plans for a retail scheme on an allocated employment site on the outskirts of Blackpool were under threat with a recommendation for refusal from officers. Social Communications engaged with local ward members and Fylde councillors to promote regeneration and employment benefits. Planning committee members overturned the recommendation at committee.

Snowhill

First phase of a major regeneration scheme in Wakefield including a mix of shops and restaurants. Social Communications provided design, consultation and PR services for a public exhibition, positive media coverage and supportive Facebook page with 150 members. Application approved at planning committee.

Stanningley

A multi-million pound regeneration scheme on a brownfield site, the Stanningley plans included a discount food store as well as shops and car parking. Our team provided design and consultation support for a public exhibition as well as stakeholder and political engagement. Supporter campaign once application submitted helped towards a positive decision by the planning committee.

We engage and mobilise the silent majority and seldom heard.
