Government Relations and Advocacy

Develop the support you need for success.

Government Relations and Advocacy

At various points in the project development process, there may be opportunities to discuss your project with key decision-makers. At these times, having a respected adviser on your side who understands how they think can be invaluable.

Getting the right people on your side

RG Strategic is led by one of these experienced advisers. Russell’s many years in local government means he understands the concerns and priorities of professional staff and elected representatives — and he is well-respected by them.

Our entire team actively knows who to contact on particular issues, when is best to engage them, and how to approach them in a constructive and productive way.

Many projects also require advocacy with stakeholder groups. Our consultants have a hands-on approach to community consultation, presenting information sessions to local residents, businesses, special interest groups, and others. We’ll guide you on the best way to successfully engage stakeholders for your project.

We engaged RG Strategic to help us with our liquor licence and food licence for our new venue Flo's Creperie in Mooloolaba. Having worked with Russell, Maree and Tracey during the launch of our Noosa venue, we already knew they were a highly professional and knowledgeable team. This time, however, they really went above and beyond, performing a few miracles along the way to ensure we opened up on time. We couldn't be more grateful for their arduous work and commitment. I highly recommend RG Strategic to anyone who needs assistance with planning matters, and I look forward to working with them again in future!

RG Strategic was engaged by RLSSQ to redesign and seek the Food Premises approvals for our commercial kitchen and kiosk. Russell and his team at RG Strategic assisted with the project from initial planning, through to completion of work. Russel was well versed in council guidelines and requirements, and referred us to sources for cost-efficient suppliers, etc. The Food Premises project was completed quickly and passed Council inspection without any fuss. Thanks, Russell.

We worked with Russell and the team for licensing of our food manufacturing premises. They were so great and easy to work with - nothing about the process was stressful and they guided us through each step of the way. We'd definitely recommend working with RG Strategic!

My partner and I own a Fitness Centre on the Northside of Brisbane City. As we are young business owners in the fitness industry, we were unaware of Brisbane City Councils zoning & change of use requirements. In the very early stages of our business, we were notified by the BCC that we needed town planning approval to continue trading in our location, and originally it looked as if our young gym was going to be forced to close. After contacting Russell at RG Strategic, our minds and stresses were immediately put at ease. We trusted that he would find a way to make it work for us, and through his amazing knowledge of Town Planning and development application needs, he was able to secure a permanent town planning approval for our location. We cannot recommend his services enough! Throughout the whole process, RG Strategic has handled our case with the utmost care and communication, so that we were able to continue to focus on building our business, whilst they attended to the needed requirements of the development application and subsequent town planning approval. We have managed to stay stress-free and cannot thank RG Strategic enough!
