How to purchase the Guidelines

The Guidelines are available on a subscription service basis. Users pay a lump sum in the initial year to acquire the Guidelines and Templates suites followed by an annual subscription thereafter.

The initial cost and subscription rates reflect the size of the council based on population.

Each user council will enter into a simple User Agreement which will include an enterprise licence allowing multiple and concurrent use of the suite throughout the council.
