The delivery of the UK’s infrastructure is a complex process involving numerous planning systems from Transport & Works Act orders to Development Consent Orders (DCOs), consents from the Local Planning Authority to Hybrid Bills.
At BECG we advise our clients on which options are open to them, carry out a full risk analysis and can even develop consultation and engagement strategies that de-risk any change in consenting route. This process often forms part of our support at any Outline Business Case (OBC) stage.
To achieve this BECG brings its experience of planning procedures together with meticulous research and creativity to generate successful strategies that will promote and driving advocacy while also complying with any consultation requirements.
We can also provide evidence of inclusion from hard-to-reach groups and the use of techniques to improve interaction from hard-to-respond groups. In addition, we can develop processes to illustrate and track the level of influence within a consultation as part of any reporting commitment.
