On behalf of Penzance Heliport and its planning consultancy agency Wild West developed and delivered a tightly managed press, digital and public affairs communications campaign for this confidential project. Coordinating all press, web, social, key opinion formers and stakeholder communications the team strategically launched the proposal ahead of the official planning application submission. With careful and tactical planning and messaging the team dominated the local news agenda and social conversations with the announcement and continue to support on all communications.
Plans for a replacement heliport in Penzance are underway. The proposed £2 million investment into west Cornwall will see the reinstatement of the popular scheduled helicopter service between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly. Subject to planning consent for the Penzance Heliport, the helicopter transport link – one of very few helicopter passenger routes in the world – should be operating by early 2018.
