Monteith Brown Planning Consultants understands the importance of public
consultation in achieving broad community involvement and attaining consensus.
MBPC has completed a variety of consultation initiatives, either as stand-alone
projects or as a component of a larger project, that have been fundamental to
determining the public's opinion and engaging all facets of the community.
MBPC's interactive approach to public consultation helps to create a shared
vision and defines community priorities.
Through our years of experience, we recognize that the process must be flexible
and responsive to our clients' needs and that public consultation is about more
than simply generating information – we are interested in achieving public
understanding and “buy-in” to the final product, which are critical factors in
the project's ultimate approval. Community engagement and stakeholder outreach
are essential elements of every successful planning project undertaken by MBPC.
