Our Approach

Stakeholder and Community Engagement, Marian Place Gasholder Site
Stakeholder and Community Engagement, Marian Place Gasholder Site

St William believe in adopting a collaborative approach and maintaining an open and inclusive dialogue with the local community and stakeholders. At Bath Gasworks this will include:

  • In-person and virtual consultation events including public exhibitions;
  • Guided tours of the surrounding area;
  • Printed and online surveys;
  • Printed and electronic project updates in the form of newsletters and leaflets;
  • One-to-one meetings with members of the local community;
  • One-to-one meetings with local interest and residents groups.

Our programme of stakeholder and community engagement will respond to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to maximise public participation.

We are at the very early stages of this project but hope to begin public consultation in Winter 2021/22.
