We create online consultation and public participation tools for built environment projects



Give citizens a digital voice in planning

We create interactive online tools for town planners, architects, developers, government, engagement teams and voluntary groups to gather ideas, aspirations, issues and feedback on built environment projects.




Consult on plans for homes, jobs and retail

We work with developers to gather views on plans for new housing, retail, offices, industry, transport and infrastructure, giving those in housing, retail and employment need a platform to have their say.




Build evidence for a Neighbourhood Plan

Our interactive tools can be used to pinpoint issues and ideas for the built environment on an interactive map, building a big picture of community aspirations and helping to set the objectives for community-led plans.



Inform planning and environmental policy

We work with councils and statutory bodies to involve citizens in shaping policy, such as Development Frameworks and sustainable transport plans, giving them an accessible platform to have their say.




Involve communities in placemaking

We create tools for housing providers and regeneration agencies to capture the ideas and aspirations of vulnerable and hard-to-reach people on an interactive map, informing design and masterplanning proposals.




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 tools to engage to demonstrate grassroots support to decision-makers.
