In 2011, we worked with Sainsbury’s to consult with people and stakeholders in Penzance on a proposed new store for the town. Sainsbury’s had agreed to buy the British International Helicopters (BIH) site, to allow them to relocate their helicopter service to the Isles of Scilly. BIH was taking forward a separate planning application for this site. JBP needed to engage with local people to gain their views and feedback on the proposals, and ensure these were incorporated into the application for the store. We also needed to clearly differentiate the supermarket application from the new helicopter site application.
National Grid needed to replace nearly 3km of a vital underground electricity cable that had reached the end of its operational life. This was in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by quiet villages, so JBP needed to ensure that local people and stakeholders knew about the work in advance and would accept that there would be road closures and other likely disruption.
Palletways is Europe’s largest and fastest growing provider of express distribution services for small consignments of palletised freight. The Palletways Group is today a £180m plus turnover business and JBP has worked for the company for more than a decade, during which time it has had two private equity investors in 3i and Phoenix Equity Partners.
