Sainsbury’s: A new store at the gateway to Penzance Background

Sainsbury’s: A new store at the gateway to Penzance Background

stakeholder engagement

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 – community relations during a major underground cable replacement Background

stakeholder engagement

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.
