NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will be cancelling all upcoming Place Leaders events until June 14th 2020. We appreciate your patience during this time.
There are expectations on local governments to deliver exceptional public value, yet the capacity of local governments to deliver on requirements is often compromised by constraints in resources and limited options for attaining new resources.
State agencies, whilst they have greater decision-making power and funding allocation, are equally accountable for demonstrating a return on investment for larger civic and infrastructure works whilst ensuring public interests are at the core, yet they could seek further funding from the treasury for key projects by clearly demonstrating this return on investment.
Although it is evident that both state and local governments are responsible for delivering outcomes of public benefit, their funding resources and reporting procedures differ and at times can create competing priorities and missed opportunities for project legacies.
Could a place-based approach be the answer to some of these challenges? And if so, how do we demonstrate the value of the business case and, furthermore how can state and local governments work more closely together to support an aligned vision and business case for place.
This event will address:
What is the business case for place and how do we demonstrate value creation?
How can we create sustainable revenues, reduce expenses and ease the financial stress of governments?
How do we reposition organisations around place?
How can we support the efficiency and effectiveness of a whole of government approach over a place vision?
How do we release or realise the hidden capacity within communities and organisations?
Who should attend?
