Media House has a longstanding reputation for providing market-leading public relations and public affairs support on rural business communications.
We have advised clients across the UK on major issues including land reform, fox hunting, country sports, wildlife crime and complex agricultural legislation.
Our Rural Business Communications clients have included leading representative organisations such as The Countryside Alliance, Scottish Land & Estates, the Scottish Landowners’ Federation, The Scottish Estates Business Group, as well as prominent individual country estates and rural businesses.
We are particularly active in advising landowners and rural businesses on wind energy projects, mineral and unconventional gas extraction and fracking.
Our advisers also have considerable experience in supporting clients involved in planning and development projects in the countryside such as major housing and business developments.
Our work has involved providing strategic PR and political advice to landowner organisations and estates
This has required us to provide advice on public and stakeholder consultation exercises as well as supporting clients throughout relevant planning processes.
In Scotland, Media House has, for more than a decade, been regarded as the pre-eminent public relations adviser to landowners, particularly on the issue of land reform. Since the establishment of the Scottish Parliament, land reform has continually been a highly prominent issue, resulting in substantial legislation being brought into being.
Our work has involved providing strategic PR and political advice to landowner organisations and estates on issues such as land ownership patterns, tenant farmer relationships and community buy-outs.
We have also advised over many years’ estates and individuals on sensitive estate sales and purchases and are consultants to Galbraith, Scotland’s leading specialists in estate sales and management as well as sporting lets.
