The Localism Act has placed community consultation and stakeholder engagement at the heart of the planning process.


Landowners, developers and local authorities are all now realising the importance of being able to demonstrate a commitment to public consultation, engagement and participation in order to win planning permission.

Proteus understands local communities, how to engage with relevant stakeholders and the planning process.  Our experience includes complex planning applications in the wastes management, chemical & petrochemical, energy, renewables, housing, retail, transportation and telecommunications sectors across the UK.

We are constantly developing new techniques to talk about clients following the introduction of the localism bill, whether it is through a public relations campaign to support property developments or planning applications which link with stakeholders and demonstrate community involvement.  Our connections with local and central government give our communications campaigns national reach as well as regional relevance.
