Environmental Planning

Effective planning with the public leads to the understanding communities need and the support decision-makers want. Communication with the client and within the project team is critical.  Our approach is guided by four principles: Create equitable participation; Explore differing perspectives; Generate opportunities to develop mutual respect; Encourage thinking outside the box.  

Associated has a dedicated team to provide the specific skills to manage group dynamics and the decision process. Risk is inherent in all types of communication and can arise through all project phases.  Our environmental planning experts provide a cost-effective means to manage information and, ultimately, achieve balanced decisions.
