Excellent engagement consultant

We worked with Olly on a residential scheme in Newbury Park in Redbridge where they provided engagement services with local residents. The public exhibition held was very positive and ensured a number of residents positively supported us during the determination. We found Olly very professional and responsive and will be using their services again on other schemes.

The ECF approach is the right approach

I have had the pleasure of working with ECF's senior team in the past and i'm very glad to see the growth of a communications agency that places such high importance on delivering truly impactful and meaningful engagement. The advice that they are able to provide and the strategies that they are able to put into action benefit not only those developing and investing in real estate/infrastructure, but also the communities in which they operate. If you are looking for a consultancy that will help you deliver and gain planning approval for sustainable projects alongside positive social impacts, ECF are the obvious choice.
