Establishing collaboration principles and a governance framework for local governments.
Astrolabe Group was engaged by the eight councils in the Western Sydney City Deal to develop content and negotiate on behalf of local governments with the State and Federal Government.
A multi-sectoral, and multi-agency Deal, our team worked across three levels of government to identify areas of alignment to establish collaboration principles, a governance framework and the thirty-eight initiatives included in the Deal.
With a strong understanding of the public administration context of the three levels of government, we were extremely effective in progressing and prioritising the issues identified by local government.
Using a mix of advocacy, technical advice and drawing upon our relationships, we were able to ensure that the eight councils in the deal articulated their needs, wants and offers to strengthen the Western Sydney City Deal.
This is the first deal of its kind in Australia, setting our a clear vision and funded initiatives to build a region into the future, delivering a thriving place and people.
“Your professional advice, guidance and political expertise played a critical role in convincing all the players to remain at the table. It has been an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with you” – Western City Deal Councils
