What We Do

Chelgate Local offers a comprehensive range of strategic communications advice, planning PR, advocacy, consultation and engagement to support our clients as they move through the planning process from site allocation to planning and construction.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients to get under the skin of a project and understand their objectives. We’re not shy about taking a different or unusual approach and will tell our clients when they are wrong.

Our strategies are designed to meet and match the planning programme and create a comprehensive strategy to take the project forward and meet our objectives.

We constantly review our offer and have successfully embraced new technology and combined it with the best traditional techniques. We know when social media works and when it needs to be avoided. Fundamentally we recognise that we need to make engagement easy and genuine.
