"Longreach Regional Council engaged Buckley Vann to undertake development assessment services on a wide range of development applications. Council is very pleased with the quality and timeliness of the service provided. Assessments have always been thorough, professionally completed and provided in a timely manner. "

− Longreach Regional Council

"The people within Buckley Vann have effortlessly assimilated with Council’s staff to form a cohesive Planning Scheme project team which could have been operating as a unit for many years, not months. The expertise and experience within Buckley Vann has complemented the raw enthusiasm of the strategic planning team within Council."

− Rockhampton Regional Council

"Buckley Vann prepared a workshop series tailored to our specific training needs. The approach was carefully pitched at raising and standardising in-house capacity in our team for review of local government planning instruments against the state planning interests. Buckley Vann delivered on their training role but evolved the sessions to add value to the refinement of in-house process and tools. It was a great result for us and left us with resources we can use again."

− Department of Environment and Heritage Protection

"The Buckley Vann team have been a delight to work with. They are personable, effective and efficient. Of great important to Cruise Whitsundays is that they are not only held in high regard by us; they are known and respected by each of the agencies with whom they have had to deal on our behalf. Those authorities know that they will receive a thorough application with all necessary documentary support, easing the passage of the relevant application."
