Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council
Concilio Consult, Concilio Connect
Cambridge Investment Partnership (CIP) is an equal partnership between Cambridge City Council and Hill Investment Partnerships. CIP is supporting the Council to deliver new council rented homes across the city by developing council-owned land and other sites.
Beginning in 2020 Concilio has worked with the CIP on a number of projects across Cambridge City and South Cambs to deliver new affordable homes.
Ensuring the engagement reached as many people as possible has been key to the brief and attempts have been made to widen the engagement as far as possible. Concilio was responsible for the delivery of comprehensive digital engagement strategies that allowed a number of local communities to engage with proposals.
Key to this was creating a website for the proposals where councillors, stakeholders and members of the public could visit, view the proposals and leave their comments through interactive surveys.
Concilio also organised live webinars as part of the consultation process which gave residents and stakeholders the opportunity to hear more about the proposals and ask the project team any questions they had.
During the course of our partnership, we have been appointed on five projects which has delivered significant survey completions, website visits and engagement. We are also due to start working on another two projects with CIP in the coming months.
