We guide land owners and master developers through the process of stakeholder engagement as they bring forward large scale sustainable urban extensions and development schemes. From local communities and planning committees, to business leaders and politicians, we have the influence to lobby a range of audiences on your behalf and ensure our clients hear and be heard – the fundamentals of progressing a successful scheme. Our specialist development communications team will raise the profile of your project for all the right reasons before you even step on site.



Placemaking is about developing a collective vision which connects people and the spaces they share. Whether it’s authorities wanting to attract investment, or developers seeking support for a project, we have the technical know-how to design and implement savvy strategies that ensure your development is welcomed and embraced by local communities.


We know that the planning process can be complex and that engaging with local communities and stakeholders is pivotal to success. We devise effective and targeted engagement strategies to garner support for your development, even before an application is submitted. We will help you to really understand the thoughts and perceptions of your audiences, and will utilise a suite of relevant tactics to engage with them. Our team is experienced in delivering everything from in-person events to online-led  consultations as well as in-depth stakeholder engagement and digital outreach campaigns.


Not only are we a team of communication gurus but we are incredibly well connected. We work with a former city council leader with 40 years’ experience in local government to offer insights into potential interactions with public sector bodies and how decisions are made through planning and licensing policy.

This, combined with our ability to deliver highly effective branding and strategic marketing initiatives in collaboration with our creative partner RizkMcCay, means that all your placemaking needs can be taken care of at Cartwright.


Stakeholder engagement has been at the heart of all activity on the Unity Square scheme. We manage all communications regarding development, acting as a central hub for all activity. We work closely with Sladen Estates, its client HMRC and the key partners involved in the development to ensure all communications activity reflects the scheme’s key messages and is approved by all relevant parties.
