West of England Young Planners are pleased to be hosting a workshop on new and best practice within planning consultation and engagement.

The workshop will provide a great opportunity to learn directly from leaders with a range of professional experience engaging across the planning spectrum.

Presenting at the event will be:

  • Anna Sabine-Newlyn, CEO of Meeting Place Communications
    Anna is the owner and Chief Executive of MPC. MPC works on behalf of developers by engaging with local communities, politicians and the media to motivate support for planning applications.

  • Andrea Kellegher, Associate Director, Strategic Communications at Turley, alongside Emily Baldwin, Assistant Consultant
    Andrea is the author of the Welsh Government Pre-application Community Consultation Best Practice Guidance Note and a specialist in public and stakeholder consultation. She leads Turley’s Strategic Communications service, working alongside Emily in the South West and Wales.

  • Daniel Mohamed, Urban Intelligence
    Daniel is the Founder of Urban Intelligence Ltd., a new map-based technology platform within planning focused on guiding developers to the most suitable land opportunities.

  • Jon Toy - Consultation and Engagement Manager, Bristol City Council
    Jon is a manager within the Council’s External Communications and Consultation team. His team consults and engages on 60 to 70 Bristol City Council-led projects a year, ranging from new policy and strategy to changes to public service delivery.

The workshop will consist of short presentations from each speaker discussing their experiences of best practice within the industry. There will then be an opportunity to work in groups to discuss several consultation scenarios which arise in planning practice.

Participants will consider how engagement could best be achieved using their own experience and some of the key learning points from the presentations. Finally, groups will have a chance to feed back on their suggested approaches to the scenarios and gain insight from the experts on how they might best approach the topics.
