Pagoda worked with Asda’s planning and estates team across the UK on improving existing community relationships and developing on-going discussions between stores and local communities. Within our portfolio of regional support, we helped secure planning permission for the company’s programme of new stores, existing store extensions, refurbishments, store acquisitions, new build petrol filling stations and stand-alone click and collect hubs.
By working with Asda’s in-house teams and its communities at all stages of the engagement process, Pagoda helped support the company’s corporate reputation, whilst at the same time improving relations between its stores and the communities it serves.
Pagoda’s work delivered real results with tangible benefits, securing permission for new developments, whilst protecting Asda’s interests from competitors by building long-term, positive community relationships with local stakeholders and political representatives.
