Our work with: Larkfleet Homes

Helping to deliver new neighbourhoods

Athene Communications has worked with Larkfleet Homes, part of Larkfleet Group, on a number of stakeholder and community engagement projects in support of planning applications for housing developments across Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland and Suffolk.

The objective, through proactive communication, is to ensure stakeholders and the wider community have an opportunity to have their input on the proposals.Layout 1

Athene’s role includes engagement with key stakeholders, the organisation and delivery of public exhibitions, drafting and production of all materials, media engagement and monitoring, collation of feedback from the exhibition and the handling of on-going enquiries. Athene also produce a statement of community involvement to support the planning application.

Athene has supported Larkfleet on developments to provide thousands of much needed new homes across the region and has received positive feedback about its work.  One town council commented: “Members of the council especially commended our engagement with the local community, so thank you to Athene Communications. The chairman of the council then moved a recommendation of approval and two members battled to second her motion!”

Athene also assist with the Larkfleet Homes Community Fund which was launched in 2016 and provides support for community benefit projects as determined by local people. To date, five local projects in Eye have received awards from the Fund.

Larkfleet Homes has a track record of supporting its local communities. For each project Larkfleet takes forward, it will create a small community fund, which will be offered to support community benefit projects as determined by local people.
