Imagine if Local Government cared enough to listen

Economic regeneration tends to be run by local government without involving local businesses.

Within each district there are local enthusiastic experts with local contacts and enough skin in the game to make a real difference. Many small business work long unpaid hours for the wider community. If local Govt harnessed those skills the benefits could be considerable.

A well written brief, some clear guidelines and focus on short term objectives could see increased visitor numbers, re-location of high density employment and more house building as a result.

To achieve such ideals requires long term planning by local authorities, an open engaging approach to collaboration and the tools to co-ordinate the project.

Having deployed such systems for 30 years it's always interesting to hear people without private sector experience suggest why their way is better.

Portable Carports Make Life Easier:

The most common question we face when we talk about portable carports is “But I already have a garage. Why do I need a portable carport?” Well, one of the answers to that is “Yes, but can you take your garage out with you?” Fact of the matter is the portable carport is an amazingly versatile and useful accessory. Just because you are in the middle of a camping trip doesn’t mean your precious RV should be without proper shelter, does it? The big advantage of these portable carports is that they can be easily assembled and disassembled to provide shelter no matter where you are. These are a great option for people who love going off on long trips with friends and family.

Portable carports come in a variety of sizes for all vehicles. They also come in various colors and materials. When buying a portable carport, keep in mind future requirements, so don’t buy one that can just about accommodate the vehicles you already own. Oh, and once you buy your first portable carport you will find some amazing uses for it, for example these are really useful when you are entertaining. Just set it up and your guests can enjoy a backyard barbeque while being protected from the elements.

Another important point about carports which cannot be overlooked is that they are far cheaper than garages. If you have bought a second car but don’t have the garage space, a portable carport will save you a ton of money as well as time.Just know more information about our products please visit our site.

Is this the way of the fiture for waste and sewage treatment? I think so.
Colorado will soon be home to a large anaerobic digester plant that will produce 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas each year from cow manure, agricultural waste, and food scraps. In addition to the renewable fuel, it will produce fertilizer that can go back to the surrounding farms to close the loop.

This, I think is exactly what goes through a driver's head combined with the sudden realization that they have no idea how big their car is and therefore cannot calculate how much space to leave for a cyclist. Something all LG planners could bare in mind when designing bike infrastructure.

Hi all. I'm an elected member of Meander Valley Council in northern Tasmania. Our GM is prety keen on collaboration and so are most of the councillors. Good work for setting this community up.

I believe that Councils have a responsibility to their ratepayers to ensure the IP they develop is never tied by up by restrictive copyright. I'd like to see all Councils release their IP "as is" to the public domain before passing it on to industry bodies or private concerns to develop further.

Do people mostly agree or disagree with that sentiment?
