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.
We engaged Locale Consulting to undertake 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.
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.
Through our work with Locale, the Berry Forum were able to establish a clear line of sight from our community needs to the opportunities for implementation. The community continues to deliver on the projects that were identified, and can fall back on the Plan whenever it needs further inspiration for our next project.
Thank you so much for your excellent facilitation of the CPP workshop.
The museum successfully received funding for a substantial refit of the interior exhibitions, as well as the commencement of the out-door project. The Strategic Plan your company undertook has been pivotal in supporting our endeavours. We are in essence, gradually making progress through the targets.
Locale Consulting assisted us to prepare a substantial Federal Government funding application in support of the project, taking their knowledge of government and applying it to our strategic directions to best meet the funding program requirements. Both Cinnamon and Steve were personable and reactive to our needs, always providing updates on progress and delivering on time and to a high quality.
The community was encouraged and empowered to take the reins in as many ways as they were motivated and able. And the outcomes thus far are already immense – a fantastic, thorough, concise, clear, user-friendly plan to act upon going forward.
Having the expertise of Locale Consulting was awesome. Locale doing the hard work of collating data and drafting the plan meant that it was created with a level of professionalism that we wouldn’t have achieved without that help.
The training was excellent – casual, relaxed and inclusive, but very informative in easy to understand language.
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.
