Thurrock Council appoints Enventure for Community Strategy Consultation

Thurrock Council has a vision to be the dynamic heart of the Thames Gateway, a place of ambition, enterprise and opportunity, where communities and business flourish.  To help achieve this, it has in place a Sustainable Community Strategy developed by Shaping Thurrock, the Local Strategic Partnership.  It lays out the vision for Thurrock for the next ten years.


To ensure the Strategy still reflects local views, it has commissioned Enventure Research to undertaken a consultation with residents, local businesses and the third sector.


Mark Robinson of Enventure commented “It’s fantastic that Thurrock Council had entrusted us to consult with residents on its behalf to find out if the current Sustainable Community Strategy meets the needs and aspirations of its residents.  We are really looking forward to working on this project”.

The recent win comes after two other similar consultations delivered for Anglesey County Council and Braintree District Council.

The research will use quantitative and qualitative research and will be delivered during May and June.


Successful Resident Engagement in Northern Ireland

Enventure has just recently completed a successful programme of public engagement with residents living in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. The project involved speaking with residents on the doorstep to promote the kerbside recycling services and to complete a questionnaire designed to gather useful data about their recycling attitudes and behaviours.


Over the course of nine weeks, Enventure engaged with over a third of households in the Craigavon borough and gained some very useful feedback from residents regarding their recycling services, which has been reported to the council to inform their future waste and recycling policy.
