Creating Better Places for People and Business

 

For more than a quarter of a century, Vital Places has empowered communities with local ownership, leadership support and stakeholder buy-in for more than 40 major planning projects.

As Australia’s first specialist consultancy in delivering “place-based enterprise” , we put the public back into public infrastructure and transform local communities into better places. Communities where business growth is intrinsic to what is local… including history, culture and ecology …and therefore sustainable for the long term.

We’ll provide expert assistance in delivering place-based enterprise projects that build a healthy economic, social and cultural future for your town. Working hand-in-hand with your community leaders, we’ll strategically manage everything from project design, to facilitation of stakeholder workshops, to project action plans and integrated project delivery.

Whether your project involves a greenfield or brownfield site, we’ll facilitate productive change and help make things happen for the benefit of your broader community.

What makes Vital Places different?

 

We’re as individual as you are

The Vital Places difference is our customised approach to guiding every place-based enterprise project. Working with the unique character and issues of your community as the foundation for shaping long-term vitality, we offer specialist attention, innovation and adaptability to your specific needs.

We’re connected

Using our extensive industry contacts, we’ll bring together the strongest possible collection of specialist skills (eg. strategy development, master planning, urban design, stakeholder communication) to make your unique community stronger. This combined experience and generation of fresh ideas will help deliver even greater outcomes from your community projects and funding programs.

We’re flexible

Vital Places will work with you in the way that helps achieve the best outcomes for your place-based project. We have the flexibility to work as the director of a purpose-built team, as an in-house specialist, or as a specialist team member within larger consultant teams delivering public infrastructure projects.
