What our clients say
We have a proven track record working with local councils and not for profit organisations who need help navigating the complexities of the government system. This is what some of our happy clients have to say about us.
The comprehensive process used by Locale highlighted to Council the extent of effort that is needed to be successful in obtaining substantial grant funding. This is clearly the level of detail that the State and Federal Governments are after, and we are very appreciative of Locale’s efforts in pulling together our successful application for the Woodburn Riverside project.
Locale Consulting assisted with the preparation of Wollondilly Council’s Rural Lands Strategy. Locale was always very responsive, communicated clearly with us throughout and had a detailed understanding of rural planning needs. The Strategy needed to comply with very tight deadlines in order to meet the requirements of Council’s Funding Agreements for the project which were all achieved by Locale.
The training was excellent – casual, relaxed and inclusive, but very informative in easy to understand language.
We have worked with Locale for many years, assisting us with a range of planning and funding applications to develop infrastructure that can help sustain our sport well into the future. The team have helped us with early planning, a successful funding application securing close to $10 million and assisting with funding agreements. The team are capable, efficient and effective in achieving results and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them into the future.
Emma prepared well and ran the workshop smoothly and effectively on the day. She encouraged creative thinking with a range of exercises and tools. These were a refreshing highlight and opened up the process beautifully.
Steve has facilitated a very innovative planning model for the coastal village of Shoalhaven Heads. The Shoalhaven Heads Strategic Plan has been an instrument which has been driven by the community and made into an evolving document by Steve which has now been adopted by Shoalhaven City Council and endorsed by all levels of government.
This project involved extensive collaboration with both the local community and community leaders across eight unique coastal localities. Locale did a brilliant job of coalescing complex matters into a straightforward document – that we can now use to drive projects and respond to funding opportunities for the Bay & Basin over the next 20 years.
I loved the case studies and the questions that provoked real life discussion amongst colleagues.
Relaxed and approachable. Low reliance on Powerpoint which felt quite conversational, for a complex topic.
I would imagine that all those who participated would have learnt a lot through the process as Locale directed it. I certainly did and feel that we as a community will be well prepared and able to face challenges as they come our way.
