Value added

Drawing on our experience of early stages stakeholder relations, we helped deliver a structured programme of engagement and public consultation with thousands of key stakeholders during the development phase of one of the most controversial sections of the HS2 route.

Queenswood designed and delivered a well thought out, structured programme of stakeholder engagement, enabling us to negotiate key interfaces, reduce opposition and optimise our design and mitigation proposals.
