ACE INSIGHT WEBINAR
Part of ACE's new Insight webinar series, this is a free-to-attend event is organised by ACE Cymru | Wales. Your host Gary Davies, member of ACE Cymru| Wales committee, will be joined by Ellis Blackmore and Geraint Jones of Arup.
Public exhibitions and consultations are a central part of any new infrastructure scheme – an opportunity to raise concerns and debate the details. Traditionally, these take place in local town halls, or similar venues, with people dropping in when convenient, to learn more about the project.
Ellis Blackmore will showcase examples of how Arup Virtual Engage has been used to build on the popularity of local public consultations, making the information available to a wider range of people, in a more convenient web-based experience.
Furthermore, Arup will share the hybrid digital/traditional solution for a Public Local Inquiry (PLI) that was developed during the pandemic. This enabled the statutory process to progress safely and remain inclusive for all.
In a socially distant time, the value of a virtual and interactive environment in which to conduct these consultations, or any type of exhibition, is clear. Find out more at this ACE Insight webinar.
Geraint Jones will present how this was achieved and discuss the benefits of this approach.
