MASTERCLASS | How to conduct a public consultation

Public consultations can be so much more than just a regulatory exercise. Copper Consultancy shares both how consultations can be a valuable tool and how to maximise their effectiveness in the latest Place North West Masterclass podcast.

Creative communications expert Copper Consultancy has helped drum up public engagement for more than 50 nationally significant infrastructure projects.

Listen to the podcast to hear Copper Consultancy director Annabel John and strategic director Tom Morrison break down the intricacies of effective public consultation. They share key mistakes to avoid and outline best practices.

The podcast even looks at a consultation in practice – examining Copper Consultancy’s work with HyNet and how the company has turned a complex topic into something the public can easily engage with.

This episode is part of Place North West’s Masterclass podcast series, which is dedicated to sharing best practices on key topics and issues within the built environment.
