What is PFR?

We offer a range of techniques for community engagement, but we are most well known for our exclusive Planning for Real® process.

So you’ve heard of Planning for Real® – it’s a model, right? Well, not quite. Planning for Real® (PFR) is a nationally recognised community planning process based on a 3D model. The process allows residents to register their views on a range of issues, to work together to identify priorities, and in partnership with local agencies go on to develop an action plan for change.

In this section we explain the different stages of the PFR process. Of course there is plenty of flexibility within this process, and we can adapt any programme to suit a client’s needs. We also explain in more detail our other techniques for successful community engagement.
