Stakeholder Engagement

We're in this together

We help clients engage with key stakeholders on projects across property and construction, utilities and large corporate activities. Our personal approach creates genuine connections and tangible feedback.

JBPs experience and contacts ensure clients’ get the best possible advice. Our strategies and action on the ground helps achieve goals like planning permissions – we have an enviable record of success.

The right strategy





“We received positive feedback from local communities and councillors about how they were kept up to date with these projects. Over the three years, JBP was proactive in providing a valuable communications support service. The team helped us to maintain and enhance our reputation as a responsible business in communities where we work.”

Helping you to secure the right results

Authentic and skilled engagement pays off – stakeholders are more likely to support projects if they can help shape them from early on.

Good engagement:

  • Contributes to providing certainty and positive outcomes for the development process, saving time and money
  • Identifies or defuses issues which could otherwise derail development
  • Helps local communities, special interest groups and elected members navigate what can be a complex landscape.

Experts in property and planning

We have particular experience in the property sector.

Working as an embedded member of the wider project team, we support planned developments across England and Wales through the whole planning cycle, from acquisition, to site submission, through allocations and pre-application engagement and beyond. Our Planning and Property PR team also have extensive experience of post-consent PR to ensure the scheme sells. We work on a wide range of projects, including housing, mixed-use, commercial and regeneration, from our five offices in London, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester and Warwick.
