Community Consultation Case Studies

What We Do

When working on large developments with our clients we hold public consultations, meetings and working groups in order to work with the community so that these projects also benefit them. We liaise with town and parish councils, key stakeholders and individual councillors to hear their comments and suggestions, which can then be put forward into the project, again benefitting the community, improving the development and assisting our clients in getting the planning consent that they require.

We have included below some examples of projects that we have worked on which had a large element of community consultation involved.

Long Buckby

Optimis assisted a national housebuilder with this development of 132 units. We held public consultations to gain the support of the local community, which had previously strongly objected against this development. Through holding a public exhibition and meeting with the parish council, public comments were used to improve the scheme, and the majority of the community were on board with the project by the end of this process.


Optimis is currently working with a regional housebuilder for this community project, to provide new facilities, namely a new community centre for the village, funded by private housing. Through public consultations, meetings with the public and working groups we are working with the community and the parish council to achieve the best asset for the whole village.


Optimis worked with a national housebuilder on this project for 160 dwellings. We consulted with key community groups, including Stratford Voice and Stratford Society, as well as spending a lot of time working with Stratford Town Council to work through the issues they raised in their objection. The work we did and the amendments we made meant that the Town Council removed its obligations. Through this we gained the support of the council and the community and subsequently received permission for this development without needing to go to committee.
