Sainsbury’s and Leicester City Council hired us to manage property communications for the delivery of major changes in the city centre, including the demolition of the Belgrave Road Flyover and a range of highways improvements.
We provided property communications which involved public affairs, community relations and a PR campaign to support the works, keeping local people informed, engaged and able to have concerns addressed during major disruption to daily life.
“The GBW team ensured a co-ordinated approach and consulted on demolition options, issued regular letters to a large community database, held successful face-to-face consultations with local businesses, managed a Freephone and developed a suite of marketing display materials, including billboards.
They handled the complicated project with skill, understanding and a steely determination to ensure all messages were conveyed clearly and all audiences engaged. They worked effectively and in a timely and sympathetic manner and we were not disappointed – local residents, businesses, and key stakeholders felt that they had been fully engaged and informed.”
