Engaging with stakeholders can be a key factor in ensuring a successful outcome for your project.
For urban planning projects this may involve engagement with government agencies who influence certain aspects of development including environmental approvals, transport infrastructure and community facilities. Understanding their viewpoint and requirements for your project, can be a critical factor in delivering results that are supported by these key stakeholders.
The benefits of using the services of an expert in the field include their knowledge of who the relevant stakeholders are, what is the best method of engagement and the ability to apply processes to ensure that stakeholder engagement is comprehensive. Utilising a professional can alleviate risks for your project that can emerge when stakeholders are not engaged at the appropriate time or in the appropriate manner.
