Local, regional, and sometimes even national, press can all take an interest in development proposals. In the worst-case scenario, this can create a media campaign against a proposed scheme, portraying the developer as unsympathetic to local feeling.
RDPA offers strategic media relations in Manchester and throughout the north-west to developers looking to help promote a scheme, manage local opinion and avoid an unbalanced piece being published. Our services range from briefing journalists on a scheme and drafting press releases, through to providing reactive media relations advice.
RDPA also provides a political and media monitoring service as part of our public affairs programmes. This ensures clients are aware of any news/political decisions that are relevant to their proposals, and allows them to respond where appropriate.
