Planning Communications

Quantum Public Relations provides strategic planning communications to support major infrastructure projects and housing developments.

Quantum Public Relations has extensive experience in arranging public consultation and community engagement events, public affairs and lobbying key decision makers and generating positive media relations campaigns. We specialise in providing communications and marketing support for infrastructure development projects including housing developments, solar farms, wind farms, EfW plants, biomass facilities, retirement homes, business parks, sports facilities and anaerobic digestion facilities. Our Kent-based consultants understand the UK planning regime and local public affairs and are experienced at working closely with planners and lawyers as a seamless team.

Effective communications with the local community, key stakeholders, opinion formers and decision makers can make the difference between success or failure to your project. We have the necessary marketing tools to secure and demonstrate support for your planning application whilst reducing the impact of opposition, raising the chances of a successful outcome for your project.

Our record

Quantum Public Relations' planning record speaks for itself. We were the first agency in the UK to have a project successfully accepted by the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC), and subsequently the first (and only) project to be granted a development consent order by the IPC. Two of our other NSIP projects were accepted by the IPC for examination, passed to the Planning Inspectorate and subsequently consented.

A major coup was successfully supporting a controversial Section 36 application through two public inquiries until it was ultimately consented, and then, when constructed, organising the plant's official royal opening. We also have a string of successful Town and Country planning consents for projects across the UK.

Quantum adheres to the CIPR and PRCA industry codes of conduct.
