.id's 'Loop of Knowledge'

In a mixed economy, it's important that Government understands the market economy in which they operate; and that Corporates understand the objectives of government decision making.

At .id we have developed a loop of knowledge that enables us to address these challenges. How?

In the mixed economy, local governments play an important role as the 'gatekeepers' to development. .id's profound understanding of local government informs our consulting and advice to our corporate clients, who are making important locational business decisions.

As our corporate clients are making big decisions about investment in 'place', our experience with them in turn, informs our work and advice to local government. This forms the loop of knowledge.

To bring you into the loop, check out our list of local government clients here; and our list of blue chip corporates and not-for-profits here. And to find out how we work with them,check out our case studies.

Providing the loop of knowledge not only makes working at .id so interesting, it brings benefits to all players planning and investing in communities in our towns and cities across Australiasia.

Using data to inform community engagement – Who do we REALLY need to plan for?



With the drive for improved efficiencies with finite resources, local governments need to demonstrate a commitment to delivering best value services to communities. But how best to target these services? Information is key for strategic direction, but even more so, the interpretation of that information. The results can be surprising as this guest blog from Keith Davis, Manager Urban Design, at City of Unley demonstrates.

Why is speaking Te Reo Māori on the decline?



Te Reo Māori became an official language of New Zealand in 1987 and revitalisation efforts started shortly after guided by a vision for Te Reo Māori to grow as “a living language that reflects life and culture in Aotearoa”. How well is that vision progressing?

Final word

The places with the least population change



The ABS releases a publication called “Regional Population Growth” every March, and the media (and .id) focusses mainly on which areas are growing the most, and which areas are declining. What about areas that are neither growing or declining, but staying the same?
