"We find solutions not problems"

"We add value rather than costs"

Why Our Clients Choose Us

“From the moment we first approached Novo Group, we appreciated their honest appraisal of our project and suggestions for how it could be improved to better meet the expectations of the district plan and council’s planning staff. We understand that Kim and her team have a very good working relationship with the council staff, which meant that she was able to discuss the details of our project frankly with them before each application was finalised. Kim prepared a clear and concise application and assessment of effects. …Our overall experience with Kim Seaton and Novo Group exceeded expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending their planning services to others.”

“Kim and the Novo team have an excellent understanding of the planning rules and requirements in the locations I have developed and have well established and respected relationships with Council officers, which assists when navigating through challenging and ever evolving planning and resource consent issues. I have no hesitation in recommending Kim and Novo Group for their professional services.”

“We have engaged Novo Group on a couple of our more complicated building projects. We have found them to be very knowledgeable, efficient and helpful with planning advice and resource consent applications.”

“Nobody understands the council’s rules and regulations as well as they do. Not only did we sail through the consent process painlessly, the time we saved on reworking architectural and engineering drawings by getting it ‘right first time’ more than made up for the costs of using a consultant. The council process is daunting, time consuming and expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing so if you don’t want this pain and you want to keep your costs under control get Novo Group working for you!”
