what we do…

strategic land use planning

Connection. Identity. Legacy.

As awarded, ex-local government and industry planning leaders, our combined experience of more than 50 years delivering strategic planning solutions across the country positions us as unrivalled trusted advisers, big thinkers and innovators with acumen.

Across the gamut of strategic planning needs, we know that there is no one size that fits all solution. We also know that adhering to prescriptive process will never support the delivery of truly great strategic planning outcomes.

Our experience tells us that a more traditional, ‘linear’ strategic planning process is becoming fast outdated in a time where cities and communities are experiencing rapid change and the values and usage of our public spaces and places is evolving at pace.

Over half our professional lives have been built on ex-government experience, and we know there are growing pressures faced by our clients to deliver bigger and better ways of achieving new mixes of improved environmental, economic, cultural and social benefits for communities via great strategies, schemes, policies and plans.

Enter a fresh, circular, more integrated approach to strategic planning solutions.

Here at Infinitum Partners, we have pooled the very best of our team’s expert knowledge and experience, to develop a unique, multi-lens methodology and highly integrated, strategic planning model that never loses sight of the client’s original vision and mission.

We work in committed partnership with our clients and consultancy teams to research, engage, strategise, test, implement and evaluate strategic outcomes (… plus a little more) that are always cognisant of contextual trends, commercial opportunities, place identity and community expectations.

Be it urban or regional, statutory or conceptual, our team has the combined skills, commitment, experience and know-how to support industry leading, award-winning outcomes for every Strategic Planning challenge, because rather than just tick traditional planning process boxes, we prefer to create more robust planning tools for genuine place connection, identity and legacy.

  • Local Area Plans

  • Planning Scheme Amendments
  • Planning Scheme Drafting
  • Concept Master Plans
  • Community Engagement

inhouse planning support

Experienced, Knowledgeable, Trusted.

organisational improvement

Tenacious, Outcomes Focused, and Impartial.

Only when you have been a customer can you truly apply the thinking of a customer to enable the evolution of service delivery. Similarly, only when you have been within government (at its highest levels) can you truly appreciate the complexities and sensitivities across the breadth of these significant and complex organisations.

To optimise any organisation (public or private) there needs to be both a technical understanding of operations with a simultaneous strategic understanding of the highest level vision and objectives of the business. To be truly effective this understanding then needs to be from both the customer and service provider perspective at the same time. IP brings this experience and capability.

We work with your team, your customers, and stakeholders to more meaningfully understand each of their respective experiences and inputs to the service delivery supply chain. We identify opportunities for improvement that drive customer satisfaction, cultural improvement, enhanced outcomes (that actually get delivered), and profitability. We do this across business systems, processes, and people, utilising previously successful implementation experience and contemporary practice simultaneously.

SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Risk Mitigation and translation
  • Opportunity Identification
  • Asset and Portfolio Optimisation
  • Customer Satisfaction and Sentiment
  • Operational Health Checks
  • E-Planning Solutions
  • Resource Improvement Strategies

government services

Committed, Trusted, Experienced.

Infinitum Partners have worked at every level of government State and Local, both internally and externally, providing us with a unique skill set founded on trust and delivery. All too often underwhelming outcomes and a lack of follow through create community angst, and we are here to assist when crisis arises, workload demands, or because the nature of the task is complex and or sensitive.

Infinitum Partners have led large government bureaucracies through time of significant political, economic and policy change, and in doing some have had oversight of a significant body of policy development. We have had to negotiate a post GFC world that necessitated both inward and outward policy and operational change. We have needed to support communities impacted by natural disasters, economic, political and policy crisis.

The impact of these influences engenders lateral consideration about policy development, portfolio optimisation, and advocacy and funding strategies. These solutions need to be pragmatic, sensible and stimulatory all at the same time. These solutions need to be multifaceted, acknowledging both the complexity of the issue and the strength of the response required.  

Infinitum Partners provides a senior set of hands that can assist with all manner of government services, and we make this offer from an informed place. If the issue to be solved requires out of the box thinking, is complex, and requires tenacity and follow through then we can assist.

SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Policy Development
  • Government Relations
  • Asset and Portfolio Optimisation
  • Strategic Advisory & Communications
  • Policy Review
  • Infrastructure Planning & Charging
  • Recovery
  • Special Counsel
  • Advocacy and Funding strategies and support
  • Regional Plan Review
eplanning

Fit for purpose, Interpret, Translate, Practical.

Too often technical solutions are deployed into businesses, without appropriate understanding of what is required to support successful implementation, and in some cases whether it is in fact even going to deliver an improved outcome.  Team IP has experience delivering discrete and enterprise-wide technology solutions for both public and private sector organisations. In fact, we are regularly engaged to assist with optimising products once they are implemented, because we understand the questions and processes required to ensure technology is fit for purpose.

Prior to the work from home phenomenon brought on in response to a global pandemic, Team IP was working in partnership with leading e-Planning software providers implementing e-planning solutions for government. These solutions enable access in a contactless self-serve environment to planning information that is more intuitive and simpler to navigate. These solutions provide transparency, accessibility, and improved operational efficiencies for both council’s and their customers.  

We have seen the benefits ePlanning can deliver. We endeavour to use technology to demystify and democratise planning information by making it better and simpler to access for the community and development industry to inform their respective decision making instantaneously from the comfort of their homes or offices.

SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • ePlanning Software
  • Systems Integration
  • Digital Strategy
  • Process Improvement
  • Change Management and Internal Adoption Strategies
  • Internal Communications
  • Implementation Support
