Economic Development

Bringing people and ideas together to build prosperity.

Evolve a vision everyone can buy into

We partner with projects at the earliest stage to create compelling visions that capture the imagination to help gain consent, secure funding and increase prosperity and quality of life across the UK. Whether developing strategic transport projects and new homes, rejuvenating a city centre or developing regeneration strategies for high-profile projects, we help public and private sector partners to capture the imagination of stakeholders by communicating a clear and compelling vision for growth and enabling people to shape outcomes.  

Engaging stakeholders to influence opinion

Through our work with high profile projects at the forefront of the Levelling Up agenda, we understand how local and national politics affect economic development. With experience in government, our team brings first-hand understanding of how it shapes policy. This helps us articulate a compelling narrative around your project that captures the imagination and sets the foundation for positive engagement.  

Confidently shape propositions

We engage early with those most important to your project, building strong relationships to ensure your project can be successfully developed in collaboration with the community and the context of a wider vision for regeneration. 

We listen, we learn and we respond so you can evolve your early-stage vision into plans that reflect community and stakeholder needs and wants, giving them a stake in the successful outcome of the programme.
