■ ANZ, 249 Waterworks Road,
Our experts are engaged by ANZ to obtain the required council planning permits for all their branches throughout Australia. This project was the conversion of a former St Georges bank to an ANZ branch and also included the temporary closing of the footpath.
This former St Georges Bank was taken over by ANZ in mid – 2020 and was required to be refurbished and opened as an ANZ branch in less than six months. Our team were appointed to obtain town planning approval and approval to erect the hoarding on the footpath so the construction team could commence an expedited fitout.
In consultation with Council the CS team lodged a congruent town planning approval application and a footpath occupation permit for the hoarding with council. This allowed for an expedited dual approval of both elements of the project but was dependant on comprehensive details to be provided to Council at lodgement stage to ensure both applications proceeded seamlessly through council. With no further information requested by council in assessing either application, both were approved within weeks of lodgement and the fitout was completed and the branch opened to customers ahead of schedule in October 2020.
