dc.description.abstractIn recent years, an emergent model of public administration has emphasised ‘joined up’ government and partnerships between government and community as a means of better responding to the complex issues faced by local and regional communities. Building on tentative early steps, the Victorian Government has moved to an enthusiastic embrace of this approach. With a focus on those activities being led by the Department for Victorian Communities, this paper explores the government’s ambitious ‘place’ agenda. Paying particular attention to initiatives such as the Community Building Initiative, Community Renewal, Transport Connections and Regional Management Forums, it explores the common themes, challenges and opportunities arising from the work completed so far. The paper concludes that the move towards a government administration that is able to respond flexibly to the complex demands of local and regional concerns is still in its infancy, and policy is evolving as we learn from the experience of the work that has taken place. While relevant structures may now be in place, it will take some time to develop the potential of this type of approach, as the skills and behaviours required are markedly different to those required in a hierarchical, rules-based system. A significant cultural change—in State Government, local government, and even in the community—will be necessary before we can see the true potential of a flexible, collaborative, partnership-based approach.en_US
