PlaceChangers Ltd. helps organisations embed online community engagement into their planning and property development work.
A company with purpose
We make it easier for planners and architects to run effective online consultations for community engagement that delivers tangible insights.
How we do it
We provide a cloud-base consultation and engagement platform which helps you to reach out to a wider audience than that of traditional public exhibitions alone.
What we do
We reduce your project risk through insights that enhance your proposals or plans.
The core team has strong credentials in online placemaking. Depending on the clients' needs, we regularly partner with subject experts in our network.
