Consultation in the built environment
A public consultation is a process in which the general public’s views and opinions are sought, for example, on planning applications, or major infrastructure projects that will have significant impact upon an area. For more information see: Consultation process.
Private consultation is a process in which professional consultants are appointed by a client to perform expert tasks on a project, such as the appointment of an architect, engineer, quantity surveyor and so on. For more information, see Consultant team.
The term ‘consultation’ can also refer to a consultation paper, which is a policy document published by the government (or other bodies) and intended for public comment and feedback on its contents and the issues it raises.
