Social Planning
Community participation is critical for consultations, social planning, service development and many other interactions with local residents and businesses. Skillfully planned community consultation can achieve major benefits, while clumsy efforts can simply generate ill-will and poor community relations.

We are experienced in the design and conduct of consultation processes including public meetings, group facilitation, community publications, and public presentations, generating community interest without unfairly raising expectations. With over fifty years experience of the community sector at all levels, we have developed practical and effective approaches to working with communities.

Colin Menzies wrote the social planning manuals for local government in NSW and in Queensland, with chapters on the management and application of consultation techniques. Check out the details of our many projects in our Chronicle of Consultancies.
