"Tony Blue was engaged by Council as Project Coordinator to take the planning from investigation and preparation of an overarching Structure Plan, through to the preparation of local environmental plan and development control plan provisions for the area. The project was very complex, including negotiation of environmental offsets and voluntary planning agreements by Council and Tony handled the coordination of the project skillfully throughout, without significant conflict with the parties involved.

"The Consultant demonstrates an extensive knowledge of population statistics, demography and the systems of the ABS. In addition, Council has on several occasions made follow up enquiries about the population projections, and other general population matters since the completion of the project. The Consultant has always been available and readily provided assistance with those queries. I have no hesitation in recommending the Consultant for other similar projects.
