An understanding of local government will greatly assist the smooth operation of a business or activity.  "Red Tape" can be a killer.  It is necessary to understand the bureaucratic approach & to be able to harness it's energy to achieve a positive outcome.

Malcolm has spent many, many years negotiating with Local Government – in fact he has some amazing insight into such matters having served on Dunedin City Council himself!  So it is fair to say Farry Riddell Business Consultancy is well placed to answer your questions - from obtaining consents, to applying for licences, setting up business and generally finding your way around the many areas of what you will need to be doing to keep your Local Government happy – and indeed learning how they can also help you and your business or organisation. Let’s investigate the possibilities!
