We provide a comprehensive service, including: project team liaison, preparation of consent applications and assessments, coordination of other experts, Council-liaison, and presentation of expert evidence at Environment Court and council hearings.
Our planning advice adds value to projects large or small. We recognise that clients are less interested in rules and the planning process than the outcome, and they want to maximise their opportunities, whilst minimising timeframes, costs and risks. With this in mind, we utilise our planning expertise to navigate the process and provide focused, relevant advice to clients where it counts.
