UrbanTalk transforms traditional community engagement into a multimedia digital experience. We offer a range of multimedia packages specifically tailored to the needs of your development project. Choose from a variety of packages including a drone location video, community consultation videos, construction updates, webinars and podcasts. We work with you to create the perfect fit for your project.

UrbanTalk enables you to provide relevant and timely information about your development or urban planning project to local communities and key decision makers at their convenience anytime anywhere. While traditional consultation still has its place in projects, we now provide a digital service which has the potential to reach a larger and more diverse demographic. Our team offers you an all-inclusive experience; organising the shoot day, filming, editing, researching community concerns, facilitating webinars and ensuring a smooth process along the way.

When we lodge a development application or exhibit a local plan we take for granted that communities will understand our development concept. That they will go onto a Council website or travel up to the Council Chambers and take a look at development plans. We forget that what is on exhibition is often voluminous specialist reports full of planning jargon and complicated architectural plans.

It’s a big ask to expect local communities to be able to find the time to navigate these documents and an even bigger ask to expect them to be able to understand and conceptualise the developments they are proposing. UrbanTalk fills this information void providing communities with timely and relevant digital information about a development or urban planning project occurring in their local area.
