Town Planning Approval

PLANNING APPROVAL FOR THE RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL AND CORPORATE MARKETS

PLANNING APPROVAL PERMITS

You can require a town planning permit or development approval from your local council for a variety of buildings and works or new business uses on your property. An application for a planning permit must demonstrate how your proposal is consistent with your local councils planning scheme for it to be approved. If you application does not contain enough relevant information for Council to assess it against the planning scheme then the approval can become a lengthy process and your application could be refused by Council.

You can have confidence that your application will be complete on lodgement to Council when you engage our expert team. You will also benefit from saving time and stress by appointing our team to act as your representative with council. The town planning process can be complex and treacherous, but our experts have the benefit of many years of experience dealing with local council to get planning permits approved under a wide variety of situations. Thus, they are in the best position to provide high level advice to our clients to prevent unforeseen problems with applications before they arise, making the process quicker and smoother for our clients. The benefits to you of our service are:

  • A proactive approach to lodging an application that includes all the relevant information council require from the outset;
  • An intimate knowledge of the internal process and working of local council planning departments;
  • Getting quicker approval and more prompt feedback from Council;
  • How to avoid and deal with objections from neighbours if they arise.

The cumulative value of this expertise provides our clients peace of mind in the outcome and as seamless a planning approval as possible.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

CS Town planning helped me to secure a planning permit with very few conditions. They were able to address all the concerns raised by council for a design which originally had a number of compliance issues. They provided services above and beyond expectations. Engaging CS means much more than planning reports, they will also communicate with the relevant authorities and provide thorough follow up advice throughout the planning process. I can highly recommend CS Town planning to you.
