Stakeholder Engagement

HDA has a bespoke approach to engagement providing a level of input that is appropriate to the site and its setting, which includes leaflets, public exhibitions, meetings, presentations and workshops.

We are experienced at preparing exhibitions to full stakeholder engagement strategies. We have facilitated and delivered design workshops for major urban extensions and new settlements.

Positive engagement helps establish agreed design principles that can be carried forward through the life of a development.
