Why Good Planning Matters

You’ve got the site, the overheads, feasibility and the goal – but do you feel comfortable in your consultant navigating their way through the complex statutory environment to secure the best possible outcome? Or is it just another job for them.

Our Planners have experience and strategies to negotiate positive solutions and mitigate against the minefield of obstacles and constraining conditions that can otherwise attach themselves to your approval.

From unreasonable conditions, lengthy delays and inaccurate infrastructure charges being applied, this additional attention to detail can lead to considerable savings of tens of thousands -if not hundreds- of thousands of dollars that could have otherwise been overlooked. While some planners focus on just the approval, our focus goes beyond to ensure we achieve the intended outcome while providing overall peace of mind. Council requests can seem unpredictable and unreasonable at times, but with appreciation of context and current Planning Culture and Legislation, we have awareness on how to mitigate any angst and confusion. Our intention is to remain open and engaged with Council Planners and relevant stakeholders to ensure we are abreast of any inbound changes to their systems and Governing Laws.

Conversely, we pledge an open agenda of communication with our Clients the whole way, even more so when things become complicated.

Having established relationships that also extend into other fields (Architects, Civil & Structural Engineering, Environmental Consultants, Traffic Engineers, Acoustics) results in consistent deliverables and anticipation to changes in policy across many fields. This results in more reliable and expected outcomes for the client.
