Pre-Planning Digital Consultation Solutions

Your planning application may be at risk if you can't demonstrate how you've consulted effectively with local stakeholders and communities.  An efficient and convenient digital-first approach to your consultation can help you build depth and breath in your process, manage the risks and help build deeper relationships with project stakeholders.
