Challenge

The wastewater infrastructure in the Glen Eden area was upgraded to prevent overflows after prolonged and heavy rainfall. Align helped to negotiate land access under the Local Government Act for the sewer line.

Approach

Discussions with stakeholders were conducted in an early, honest and open manner. We ensured their concerns were taken into account, including minimising disruption to residents and the general public.

Outcomes

We successfully created support and consequently land access for the project. It was a collaborative effort, good relationships were built with stakeholders and they were able to contribute to the solutions.

Discussions with stakeholders were early, honest and open, and we made sure their concerns were taken into account.
