Public Consultation is a regulatory process where input is sought from the public on matters that may affect them. The goal of a Public Consultation is to improve the efficiency, transparency and public involvement in large-scale development projects.

A Public Consultation involves;

 Notification (to publicise the matter to be consulted on)

  • Consultation (a two-way flow of information and opinion exchange)
  • Participation (including the opinion exchange and responses from the Public in the development of the proposal).

Smart Planning held their last consultation on Saturday 9 February on a large proposal in Great Braxted in Essex.

We consulted Neighbours, Councillors, the Parish Council and the Local Planning Authority. We provided all of the consultees with a briefing pack, plans and response forms to complete and return should they wish.

A presentation was held, a site tour was conducted and questions were answered on the proposed development. We reviewed proposed plans, reports and obtained relevant feedback from attendees.
