Community and Stakeholder Engagement
Premise has a team with skills and experience from a wide range of backgrounds who understand the need for effective and appropriate communication, community involvement and stakeholder engagement.
We believe that every project needs a carefully considered and tailored approach to engagement with the community and stakeholders, as this is key to creating a smoother approvals process and fosters a more constructive relationship with the engaged communities post-approval.
Premise delivers high-quality cost-effective consultation that is culturally appropriate, meaningful and brings value to the client and the individuals, communities and stakeholders engaged.
We have completed community and stakeholder engagement across a range of industries at local and regional scales, including mining, extractive industry (i.e. quarries), subdivisions, industrial developments, renewable energy developments (i.e. wind farms and solar farms), agricultural industries and more.
Premise can assist with the following community and stakeholder engagement activities:
- Stakeholder identification and analysis
- Written correspondence (i.e. letters)
- Email communication
- Digital communication and consultation via a customised website
- Maintaining a consultation register or complaints management register
- Community meetings and information sessions
- One-on-one in-person engagement with affected landowners or other stakeholders
- Preparation of support materials for community and stakeholder engagement such as flyers, posters, maps and presentations.
