Battersea Power Station: Managing Political Relationships

SITUATION
PLMR was engaged by a major London developer to turn around its relationship with Labour politicians at all levels, after the intervention of high-level Labour politicians had led to high-profile negative media coverage, and the developer’s relationships with members of the community were fraught.

SOLUTION
We embarked on a comprehensive programme of stakeholder mapping to identify all key stakeholders and tier them by priority. We then drew up and implemented an engagement strategy, as a result of which we secured key meetings and built positive relationships with senior politicians at the GLA and candidates for the forthcoming 2018 local elections, and turned around the relationship with the local MP.

SUCCESS
We continue to manage outreach for the client, including conducting research, drafting approaches, and securing meetings.
