Cheshire West & Chester Council

The £300 million Northgate leisure and retail redevelopment scheme is proposed to transform the economic future of the historic city of Chester, creating some 1600 jobs as well as significantly increasing annual spend.

Made by Marketing was commissioned by Blue Sail to lead on the creation of public consultation materials, notably an information leaflet to be distributed across the region and exhibition panels, working closely with the Council team and ACME architects.

Jubilee Gardens

Whilst at South Bank Employers’ Group, I ran the community consultation for two regeneration projects: Jubilee Gardens, the park next to the London Eye, and Waterloo City Square.

Activity included:
* Developing consultation strategies
* Conducting baseline research to ascertain local usage and requirements
* Developing identities for both projects and creating supporting materials, including brochures, newsletters and event invites
* Attracting high attendance at community consultation events through impactful and informative communications
* Maintaining ongoing, direct liaison with local stakeholders and voluntary groups
* Managing community public exhibitions and events to provide local residents with a forum to have their say and voice their concerns
* Running the press office for both projects, securing coverage in broadsheets and trade press
