Community involvement is now recognised as a vitally important factor in the creation of socially sustainable designed environments. Getting to grips with the complex process of engaging with stakeholders is essential if architects are to get planning permission, win work and get ‘buy in’ for their schemes. Limited consultation with few real options, often produces disillusionment and frustration and can lead to negative feedback such as petitions, press campaigns and political fall-out.

This unique conference will explore best practice in setting up and executing public consultations. Specialists actively involved in public consultation work will provide you with an overview of how architects need to approach this vital aspect of bidding for work and winning planning approval.

Hear all about the public consultation involved in high-profile regeneration projects such as KINGS CROSS, ELEPHANT & CASTLE, and THE GAMES.

Key topics addressed by speakers will include:
• Community engagement as part of the planning process
• Ensuring you reach the right people through your consultation
• Consultation for The Games
• Engaging the community in sustainability
• Community consultation for education
• Involving the community in the planning of Kings Cross
• Lessons learned from the regeneration programme at Elephant and Castle
