Bellenden Public Affairs is a UK lobbying firm with offices in London and Edinburgh.

It was set up in 2006 by lobbyist Mark Glover, a Labour councillor in the London borough of Southwark and specialised in lobbying for developers to gain planning permission, particularly in London.

It is now part of Newgate Communications.

Activity

Lobbying for education industry players

Bellenden has a dedicated education and skills sector team that has lobbied on 'all aspects of education and skills policy': assessment, accountability, training provision, leadership, funding and community engagement.[1]

It says it not only know where education policy conversations will go, 'but also how to influence its direction of travel.'

Its clients in the education sector comprise of: education and training providers; exam boards; education charities; and software developers. They have included: 1994 Group, the Academies Enterprise Trust, the Access Project, ASCL, AQA, the Bridge Group, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), City University London, Ellucian, GKN, the Manufacturing Technologies Association and the Sector Skills Council.

Bellenden Local also helps schools and universities with local planning issues.

Education industry expertise

Bellenden associate, John Lakin is described as an 'education management expert', having worked in the education sector for over 30 years, including as an adviser to the UK government. He was the partner leading education consulting for PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he also led its wider public policy, research and economics capability. He has also advised the UK government, national agencies, universities, colleges and local authorities. He has also worked for the World Bank, the European Commission and the Hong Kong Government. Recent clients of Lakin's include Universities UK (for a review of shared services within universities), BIS (for national evaluation of RDAs), and the Department for Education (for a review of Academies and Building Schools for the Future. He has also represented business interests on Business in the Community and on other education business partnership bodies.[2]

Bellenden's education consultant is Natasha Graham, Associate Director, Public Affairs.

Lobbying in Scotland

Bellenden's Edinburgh office claims to 'help businesses navigate Scottish politics'. The coming 2016 election in Scotland, and more devolution, mean 'there has never been a more critical time to keep abreast of the changing political landscape in Scotland, policy threats and opportunities, and how all this could impact upon your business', says Bellenden.

Its services include: policy analysis and formation; stakeholder mapping and engagement programmes; political intelligence; reputation management; strategic counsel and advocacy; campaign planning and delivery; thought leadership; party conference programmes and parliamentary monitoring. It sees its job 'to look ahead, alert you to issues that might impact your business and help you represent your interest with MSPs, the Scottish Government, wider stakeholders and the media.'

The Scotland office also helps deliver planning approval, by: helping clients 'understand the local area they are seeking to develop in, which is crucial when seeking planning consent, including the key political influencers and decision makers, how the local planning authority operates, the dynamics of the local community and who to engage with and when.' It will then work with the client to get support for the development through: political engagement, community consultation, support generation, media management, reputation management, project advocacy and web and social media positioning.'

One of the Edinburgh office's key clients, CALA, is a development firm planning to build 80 plus new flats on the site of Edinburgh's historic Donaldson's school, a plan that has drawn firm opposition from the local community. Bellenden, a 'UK wide specialist in securing planning consent' [3] , is well versed in the use of public consultation to dispel any potential opposition to the designs of their clients.

Bellenden's Edinburgh office is led by Emma Megaughin, who has worked in the Scottish Parliament; and includes Caroline Henderson, previously of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Scottish Parliament.

Bellenden provides lobbying services (as of August 2015) to, among others, the Scottish Government on the ISLES project ('Irish Scottish Links on Energy Study').

2013-14

Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership

In January 2015, Nick Clegg criticised LEP's who turn to lobbying agencies, using Hertfordshire LEP hiring Bellenden on a year-long contract for £80,592.59 as an example. He said his door is 'always open to LEPs' and other ministers speak to LEPs all the time and questioned why they need to pay consultants to do what MPs offer for free. Conservative MP, Stephen McPartland, called for an investigation in to how taxpayers' money was spent, who it paid and the meeting that were held, adding that it should be in the public domain. A number of other LEPs are understood to be employing lobbying agencies.[29]
