At Cratus our ethos is ‘our world is local’, this defines us and drives everything we do. Established in 2009, born from our Chief Executive’s dedication to local government, Cratus is committed to creating and improving partnerships between local authorities, the private and third sectors.
We recognise the importance of decision making at local level and our primary goal in our planning communications team is to help our clients to navigate the local planning process to secure results.
Cratus has brought together a cross-party team from the top of local government to provide insight and counsel to our clients as they work with emerging local government structures, as well as the wider public sector.
