Public Sector: Highlands Council hires PS for house sale

The Highlands Council in Scotland is to hire Edinburgh-based public sector PR agency PS Communications for a one-off project to manage communications for the disposal of its stock of council houses. The agency won a three-way pitch to help with all aspects of press and public communications for the stock transfer, including media relations, community consultation and public meetings. PS director Ian Coldwell told PR Week: ’With 22,000 tenants spread across an area the size of Belgium this is a significant communications challenge.’ The agency will report jointly to housing chief Gordon Fisher and communications head Gordon Fife.
