At DevComms, we understand the importance of positive political and community stakeholder engagement in the planning process.
We believe that collaborative placemaking and positive perceptions of development go hand-in-hand. A combination which is beneficial to all parties involved. Our clients are able to deliver their development goals while stakeholders are equally valued and find worth in the process.
However, the planning process is political, can be hard to navigate and inherently challenging owing to the issues that often arise... It can become protracted and full of risk resulting in uncertainty for communities and clients. This can also impact clients’ reputations.
DevComms exists to help take the frustration out of the equation and by using our know-how and knowledge to expertly guide you through the process.
We will partner with you, to support you and help you to achieve your objectives through effective engagement strategies. We commit to:
Promoting and creating positive change by collaborating with clients and communities.
Creating better places and spaces within a community that comes from a place of mutual respect.
Expertly approaching the many phases of the planning process, helping to guide clients and stakeholders through each stage.
At the same time assuring you of our complete cooperation and guidance when navigating risk, challenges and opportunities.
Our values are rooted and grounded in a set of behaviours that we abide and operate by.
Entrusting us - our actions stem from our word. We value and respect that building trust is a foundation upon which everything else is forged.
Approach challenges from a different perspective
Shifting mindsets and opening up channels of communication, as well as creating an environment for inclusivity, change and thinking differently.
Open and innovative communication and integrity are key features of our engagement strategies. Applying an all-inclusive approach, yet in a very specific manner.
