NLWA proposed building an Energy Recovery Facility to replace the existing plant at Edmonton EcoPark by 2025. As part of the DCO pre-application stage for the project they conducted a public consultation - we worked with NLWA to provide robust and transparent consultation and engagement with stakeholders and the public
Our role involved providing strategic advice on the approach to community consultation, supporting event and materials design, developing and hosting the consultation response website and conducting analysis and reporting.
We liaised closely with NLWA and its technical consultants to ensure that our consultation outputs allowed the project’s technical team to hear, act upon and respond to the issues raised by respondents.
A summary of responses from the two phases of public consultation was made publicly available, along with NLWA’s response to the issues raised, so that those who participated can see how their comments have informed the next stage of development.
NLWA’s application has now been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate and is awaiting a decision.
