Waitrose has selected Bell Pottinger North as a communications partner for community consultation projects across the UK.
The Consultancy will be working closely with Waitrose to engage with local communities and seek feedback that will be used to support planning applications for new Waitrose shops. The campaigns will incorporate a wide range of activities, including strategic advice, organising exhibitions and liaison with key stakeholders, such as councillors, residents, community groups and local businesses.
James Armstrong, property and development communications manager for Waitrose said: “Bell Pottinger North has worked with us on a number of projects and demonstrated a clear understanding of planning procedures. The team’s experience has played an integral role in us achieving successful applications and their approach has been well received by both our property team and the people we engage with.”
Deborah Garritty, director at Bell Pottinger North added: “We’re looking forward to further developing our relationship with Waitrose and adding value to their in-house communications team. It’s great to be working with a retailer that has one of the best reputations in the country and to be playing our part in its ambitious plans for growth.”
