Porta Communications' London office, 50 Basinghall Street - home of PPS and Newgate Communications

PPS is a multi-client lobbying firm specialising in the property and development industry.

Established in 1990 as Political Planning Services, PPS Group was formed in 1999 with two operating companies: PPS (Local & Regional) Ltd and PPS (Public Affairs) Ltd.[1] With a strapline of 'working in the tougher areas of communications', PPS has more than once been accused of employing unethical tactics.

In November 2014 it was announced that Porta Communications, run by David Wright and includes Newgate Communications, Redleaf Polhill and Thirteen Communications, was buying PPS for £6.2million paid for in a combination of cash and shares in Porta Communications. PPS would be merging with Newgate Communications with Stephen Byfield becoming head of Newgate's public affairs practice. On the takeover Byfield said: "PPS has been independent for nearly 25 years. We have achieved great things in that time but an injection of fresh capital and thinking is just what we need to foster our growth and innovation."[2]

Criticism

Evening Standard journalist Andrew Gilligan wrote in July 2007:

FROM its headquarters in Mayfair, PPS has become the key player in a little-known corner of the PR industry - the branch that specialises in winning developers planning permission for unpopular schemes. Local protesters, residents' groups and even council planners may never have heard of PPS but PPS knows all about them. Its 60 staff act as the public face of controversial developments, and run a sophisticated war machine to get those developments past the objectors.
The company was founded 17 years ago by Stephen Byfield, a former staffer for a Labour MP, and Charles St George, an ex-Tory councillor. Its client list reads like a roll-call of the development industry: volume housebuilders, such as Barratt, Wimpey, and Taylor Woodrow; big retailers; quarry owners; and power stations. Mr St George, now the company's director of special projects, lives on a country estate in Somerset and is described by PPS as having 'expertise in just about everything'. Mr Byfield remains the managing director of PPS and is heavily involved in BAA's hugely controversial project to expand Stansted Airport.[3]

Fake letter writing

Imperial Wharf, London

Private eye reports on PPS
On 30 July 2007, PPS was exposed by Channel 4’s Dispatches programme and the Evening Standard for using ‘trickery, deceit and manipulation’ to secure planning permission for certain developments. They were accused of bugging private council meetings, forging letters from residents in support of developers and disguising themselves as students to help builders, St George, obtain planning permission for more than 700 homes in Fulham [4] The Standard also received internal PPS documents, leaked by concerned staff, showing the then PPS director in charge of the Imperial Wharf account, Nick Keable, describing how the company had 'created a large number of letters for projects as diverse as power stations, quarries, and supermarkets.' This is all in breach of the APPC’s code of conduct, of which PPS is a member.

The [ES] report found that many of the supposedly favourable letters sent to the council backing a massive St George Developments scheme at Imperial Wharf, Fulham, came from people who could not be traced. Other, real, residents told ES that letters they had supposedly sent, backing the development, did not reflect their views, were not written by them and included signatures that had been faked. Internal PPS documents, leaked to ES by concerned staff, show the then PPS director in charge of the Imperial Wharf account, Nick Keable, describing how the company had 'created a large number of letters for projects as diverse as power stations, quarries, and supermarkets...'

'PPS has conducted a campaign of this kind for St George as part of their programme to secure planning permission for Imperial Wharf. A steady stream of positive letters, garnered by PPS, has helped to right the balance in St George's favour.'

The Standard also 'obtained a PPS document instructing a staff member to pose as a student in order to get information from councillors', and told of 'how the local councillor for Imperial Wharf, Brendan Bird, was visited by two people claiming to be students and asking detailed questions about the planning application.'

BAA and Stansted

A similar fake letter campaign took place regarding Stansted airport expansion, although the Evening Standard couldn’t prove that the letters came from PPS.[5]:

The Evening Standard reported:

At an SSE [Stop Stansted Expansion] public meeting in January 2006, Carol Barbone, the group's chair, was approached by a young man, Phil Bartram, saying he was a journalism student and wondering if he could take... copies of SSE's research and slideshow presentations for his studies. Ms Barbone handed them over.
Only several months later, when a supporter received a message from Mr Bartram with a BAA email address, did she realise that he was actually on a work placement with, and subsequently fully employed by, BAA.
The lobbyists' trade body, the Association of Professional Political Consultants (APPC), held an emergency meeting on Friday to discuss possible action against PPS following our report. The report found that many of the supposedly favourable letters sent to the council backing a massive St George Developments scheme at Imperial Wharf, Fulham, came from people who could not be traced.
Other, real, residents told us that letters they had supposedly sent, backing the development, did not reflect their views, were not written by them and included signatures that had been faked. Internal PPS documents, leaked to us by concerned staff, show the then PPS director in charge of the Imperial Wharf account, Nick Keable, describing how the company had "created a large number of letters for projects as diverse as power stations, quarries, and supermarkets....
"PPS has conducted a campaign of this kind for St George as part of their programme to secure planning permission for Imperial Wharf. A steady stream of positive letters, garnered by PPS, has helped to right the balance in St George's favour."WE ALSO obtained a PPS document instructing a staff member to pose as a student in order to get information from councillors, and we told of how the local councillor for Imperial Wharf, Brendan Bird, was visited by two people claiming to be students and asking detailed questions about the planning application.
BAA's director of communications for Stansted, Mark Pendlington, is a former managing director of PPS. And PPS, we can reveal, has also been retained by BAA at Stansted to help win its case. The PPS website says that the lobbyist's managing director, Stephen Byfield, is "currently working on the consultation programme for Stansted Airport's expansion". The latest APPC register lists BAA Lynton, the airport operator's property arm, as a PPS client.
"Since Pendlington took over the atmosphere has changed," says Brian Ross, a senior officer with Stop Stansted Expansion. "It has started to get a lot more personal." The Standard has no direct evidence linking PPS to the fake letters sent to newspapers supporting the airport expansion. PPS specifically denies any such involvement. Mr Byfield told the Standard: "Our job at Stansted was to advise on the consultation programme. The last piece of work we did for them was about two months ago. We were not involved in support letter generation, and if you even seek to imply that we were, we will sue your arse." PPS and Mr Keable have also denied the allegations of forgery at Imperial Wharf, saying they would "never" forge letters.
A spokesman for BAA initially claimed to the Standard that PPS's work at Stansted had ended "more than two years ago". Told about the entries in the APPC register and on PPS's own website, BAA amended its statement to clarify that PPS has worked for the airport operator as recently as May. BAA conceded that Philip Bartram had sought information from Stop Stansted Expansion, describing himself as a journalism student, in the way that campaigners have said.
However, it said Mr Bartram was only on a work placement with BAA at the time, although he was subsequently employed by the company. It said it had not instructed him to represent himself as a student. BAA denied that either it or its contractors had used forgery and suggested the fake letters might be from real people who were too afraid to give their names.

APPC response

The APPC held an emergency meeting in July 2007.[6] APPC chair Gill Morris said PPS’ law firm Carter-Ruck was reviewing the coverage.

Lobbying for energy firms

PPS says that it 'has worked with most of the UK's big energy companies as well as many of the smaller players in the market'.

Energy policy is rarely out of the headlines meaning that even local projects can become national news overnight. Our team blends stakeholder engagement, media relations and public affairs to help our clients meet the challenges facing the industry in the UK.
Whether it's supporting a successful NSIP application for nuclear new build on behalf of EDF Energy or securing support from key politicians shale gas exploration for Cuadrilla, we understand the technologies, market and political issues which can affect your company.
Our experience covers nuclear, on and offshore wind, gas, CCS, biomass, unconventional hydrocarbon, marine, and associated grid connections to name but a few. This gives us unprecedented market insight. [7]

Nuclear

Nuclear spin.png This article is part of the Nuclear Spin project of Spinwatch.
Among PPS Group's clients is EDF Energy, who the agency worked with for over three years on one of the "largest planning consultations ever held in the UK" for a new nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point C project. This involved supporting EDF Energy New Nuclear Build "with the design, management and delivery of its statutory pre-application consultation process for the new power station". PPS's Stephen Byfield called it a "significant logistical challenge":
During two years of formal, statutory consultation for the Hinkley Point C project, 34 public exhibitions were held, 67 local meetings took place, nearly 6,500 consultees were engaged and there were more than 100,000 visitors to the dedicated consultation website established by EDF Energy. In total, more than 2,000 consultation responses were received and 33,000 comments processed in a detailed consultation report submitted with the application.

PPS Group director, Charles St George, who led the project, argued that from PPS’s point of view,

the value of the process was demonstrated by the fact that EDF Energy made changes to its plans in several key respects in response to the consultation. The final proposals for Hinkley Point C represent a better outcome for the affected local communities and that’s a direct result of the pre-application consultation". [8]

PPS states that it has 'already helped to establish EDF Energy’s status with the affected local communities as new owners and potential operators of the new power stations. We are now working with EDF Energy to implement extensive pre-application community consultation and communications activities to support forthcoming applications to the IPC for new nuclear build at both sites'. [9]

Fracking

Shale gas clients

Frackrig larger.png This article is part of the Spinwatch Fracking Portal and project
PPS has worked for a number of fracking industry operators, most notably Cuadrilla Resources. However from August 2013 the APPC lobbying register showed PPS as handling the account for Cuadrilla Balcombe rather than Cuadrilla as a group - Hanover Communications is listed as the agency responsible. [10]

PPS also handles public affairs for Celtique Energy.

Rapped for advertising code breaches

In 2012 PPS produced a brochure for fracking firm Cuadrilla, entitled "Summer 2012 Exploring For Natural Gas Cuadrilla Resources is exploring for natural gas in Lancashire" which the Advertising Standards Authority found contained claims partially breached CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 3.1 and 3.3 (Misleading advertising) and 3.11 (Exaggeration). [11] [12] Cuadrilla later appealed the ASA's decision, complaining that 'the ASA has not directly consulted some of the world’s leading scientists who have been studying the hydraulic fracturing or ‘fracing’ [sic] process in great detail, including experts who conducted scientific inquiries on behalf of UK Regulators. [13]

'Getting the facts across' on Shale gas and 'winning a social licence to operate'

In November 2012 PPS director Paul Kelly gave a talk at the SMI Shale Gas environmental summit on the subject of 'Effective Communication – Getting the facts across about the environmental impact of Shale Gas'.

Paul spoke about the need to embrace the concept of winning a social license to operate and set out the key ground rules for effective communication in local communities. He explained how it was vital to fully understand the local community by listening to it while also securing the buy in from all levels of the company seeking the license to operate. Finally he gave some tips on how to present clear factual communication of the issues surrounding on shore energy exploration. [14]

Breakfasting with MPs

In December 2012 PPS hosted a roundtable shale gas breakfast at the UK House of Commons. This followed the publication of the British government’s gas strategy on 5 December. PPS reported that:

Christopher Pincher MP, a member of the energy and climate change select committee, set out his views on the potential for shale gas and his thoughts on the energy bill. Over 25 guests from across the on-shore oil and gas sector attended the event. [15]

Community engagement

In October 2013 PPS director Paul Kelly addressed the UK Shale Gas Summit as part of a panel of industry experts discussing how to effectively engage with communities. The event also marked the publication of a recent PPS survey on public attitudes to community benefits and energy infrastructure.

During a lively debate, Paul focused on his experience on the ground and stressed that while no two communities are the same, and some level of protest is inevitable, the key is to understand and address each communities specific concerns whilst ensuring the facts are clearly and consistently communicated, at both a local and national level.
Other speakers included DECC’s head of unconventional gas and oil, Duarte Figueira, Environment Agency’s head of community, Tony Grayling and Tim Yeo MP.[16]

Lobbying in Scotland

In a new report on lobbying in Scotland, Holyrood Exposed: A Guide to Lobbying in Scotland [17], the PPS Group has established itself as a leader in the field of securing planning permission for clients from local planning committees, boasting work within the 'tougher areas' [18] of planning PR. Their current crop of over 100 UK lobbying clients contains energy giants such as EDF or E.ON, as well as big development players like Land Securities and Barratt.

Edinburgh Council link

In October 2007, PPS hired Donald Anderson as director of the PPS Group’s Scotland office. Anderson was leader of Edinburgh City Council from 1999 to 2006. During this time, Anderson supported an unpopular new development by Mountgrange Capital, the massive Caltongate scheme, that will see parts of the Old City overhauled to build luxury flats (listed and sound un-listed buildings demolished). It has been heavily critised for the scale and quality of the proposed new buildings, the impact on views and inadequate public consultation.[19] Mountgrange Capital is a client of PPS although it insists that Anderson will not be working on the account. Anderson insisted his current employment at PPS was not linked to his support of Mountgrange’s plans while he was council leader. ‘It’s a laughable notion,’ he said. ‘I didn’t carry undue influence.[20]
