We appear to be accepting that there will be a new normal post COVID -19 and this is impacting upon all aspects of our lives.
The recovery will be a challenging time as we try and restore the economy, stimulate growth and re-establish employment in an environment none of us have experienced before.
kinetica has positively and proactively embraced this challenge and identified a way that we can make a meaningful and original contribution to the community’s benefit.
Building upon the recommendations of the Cutting Red Tape Report on planning and building approval, we have assembled a team of respected lawyers, planners and urban designers under the name of VicAssist.
The service to the government, and the Victorian Recovery Taskforce, can undertake a range of tasks and initiatives that would improve the efficiency and effectiveness of planning approvals processes and procedures.
We have established that there are almost no processes or procedures that cannot be challenged and improved in small or radical ways.
At VicAssist we consider the permit process a fertile area for innovative ideas and process re-engineering particularly with the new heightened dependence upon electronic systems.
The depth of experience offered in the consortium, particularly working in the combined fields of planning and local government is an opportunity that municipalities might also want to access.
The partners in this initiative are:
- Kinetica Studio – Mark Sheppard and Rob Milner,
- Marcus Lane Group – Mimi Marcus and Adeline Lane,
- Glossop Town Planning – John Glossop,
- Sophie Jordan Consulting – Sophie Jordan.
The crisis has challenged us all to consider and apply new ways of working and change, at a speed unimaginable three months ago.
The familiar is no longer familiar.
