Interactive Public Consultation
Vector has designed various interactive consultations. One popular method has involved the allocation to respondents of a “budget” in the form of a fixed number of notes or counters. Respondents pass through an illustrated exhibition and might be presented with broad options (e.g. traffic measures/childrens’ facilities/environmental measures on an estate) – and also options within each grouping. The notional money is then allocated by the respondent - who is making a “real-world” prioritisation.
The respondent can either be accompanied through the tasks or asked to self-complete a form explaining their choices.
Vector has delivered such consultation packages in a range of settings relating to environmental, transport, youth and community or planning issues. The images also show examples of various delivery including basic display board approaches and more interactive audio-visual techniques.
