Independent public consultation services that improve engagement and save you time and money.

Our role is support local planning authorities to deliver effective and credible consultation. Through the consultation shop, CAG can provide a complete range of consultation services and tools. We can support you to run consultation yourself or do it for you. We can also provide support for Neighbourhood Planning groups. Using CAG experts can help you to:

  • Be credible – with a sound and independently supported public engagement process.
  • Meet your legal responsibilities and reduce the risk of legal challenges.
  • Reduce delay – by engaging successfully with local residents and organisations.
  • Reduce hassle – we can deal directly with consultees and respond to their issues and concerns.
  • Manage controversial issues - such as waste and renewable energy.
  • Increase capacity – with the additional support and resources when you need them.
  • Improve staff skills – with formal or informal training, mentoring and coaching.
  • Save money – ensure a cost-effective consultation programme.
  • Reduce the burden – we can take care of everything, from planning through to reports.
  • Involve the whole community – including seldom heard groups.
  • Use social media and the web to communicate effectively .

North & West London Waste Plan

CAG Consultants led the engagement and communications for the North London and West London Joint Waste Development Plan on behalf of the planning authorities in the North and West London boroughs.


In the North London Waste Plan I have found CAG Consultants easy to work with because they have a strategic view of what is required, they arrange well - organised events and can call on teams of facilitators who are able to draw out useful responses from stakeholders, however controversial the topic.
