DevComms has developed Consult With You, a digital consultation toolkit which offers flexible and affordable options for taking stakeholder engagement online in the planning and development process, as part of DevComms’ overall project support.


Virtual Reality (VR) exhibitions

Consult With You enables DevComms to build virtual reality exhibition rooms that provide visitors with an engaging public exhibition experience in the convenience of their own homes.

This feature opens up exhibitions to those who may not be able to, or minded to, attend physical events and can help you reach the right people. The virtual reality room can be fully re-branded to meet your guidelines.

Embedded surveys

The embedded survey is tailored for each project and can be adapted, as required, depending on the nature of the proposals. Survey questions can be linked to different pages of the platform so we embed them on the interactive plans page or on CGIs. We can provide full breakdown and analysis of survey results as part of the Consult with You service.


DevComms can create and broadcast webinars to unlimited audiences. Whilst these can be standalone events with the option of live feedback, our webinars can also be hosted on Consult With You as part of the digital consultation offer for a project.

Interactive Plans

Consult With You can host interactive plans and images which enable consultees to interact and explore a scheme with additional explanatory text, videos, dynamic keys and webinars.


DevComms can create short promotional or informative videos that can be hosted on Consult With You and shared with stakeholders. An effective mechanism for conveying key facts and context, a video can help people understand important information in a more accessible and engaging way.
