Paul Vicary

Property Public Affairs Consultant
Development Communications Limited

Work Hard...

I am a specialist political and stakeholder communications and engagement strategist in property development, assisting clients in securing planning permission for large commercial property developments.

I established DevComms with four colleagues in 2017. Our purpose is to change the perceptions of property development.

We are specialists at political and stakeholder engagement, working exclusively in the property and planning sector. Our senior team has over 75 years’ experience.

We specialise in complex planning and development projects for developers and landowners, including three FTSE 100 firms - helping them deliver their strategic development programmes and achieve their growth targets.

Our extensive experience, alongside our strategic and analytical approach, ensures we deliver the right communications strategy to secure success for our clients.
