We create interactive consultation websites that give ordinary citizens a voice in the built environment



Give citizens a digital voice in planning

We create
interactive, mobile-compatible websites for town planners, Neighbourhood Planning groups, urban designers, developers, government and voluntary groups to consult ordinary citizens on built environment issues.




Consult on plans for homes, jobs and retail

We work with developers, retailers and housebuilders to gather views on plans for new housing, retail, offices, industry, transport and infrastructure, giving those in housing, retail and employment need a digital voice.




Build evidence for a Neighbourhood Plan

We work with Neighbourhood Planning groups to build a big picture of community aspirations, using our websites to consult citizens on a range of local issues and contribute to the Neighbourhood Plan evidence base.



Inform planning and environmental policy

We work with local authorities, parish councils and statutory bodies to give a digital voice to ordinary citizens in shaping planning policy, such as Development Frameworks and sustainable transport plans.




Involve communities in placemaking

We create interactive websites for registered housing providers and regeneration agencies to involve citizens in masterplanning and urban design, capturing the ideas and aspirations of vulnerable and hard-to-reach people.




Build a case for financial support

We work with voluntary organisations and the third-sector to secure funding for built environment initiatives, using our interactive websites to engage with end-users and demonstrate grassroots support to decision-makers.
