What we can do for you...
Resource Consent Preparation and Management (Land Use, Coastal, Water)
Building or renovating a house? Starting a new business? Developing on the coast? All of these projects require compliance with complex rules and regulations from local authorities.  The Planner can ensure that all relevant matters are covered which gives your consent application the best chance of being approved in the shortest possible time.  The Planner can also coordinate project teams of architects and engineers for you, taking the stress and hassle out of getting your consent.
Pre-Purchase / Due Diligence
Purchasing your first home or adding to your commercial portfolio requires knowledge of the planning history and the development potential of the site.  The Planner can undertake a pre-purchase planning assessment or a scoping report to determine the development potential of a property or project.
Submission Preparation and Management
If you feel you are affected by a resource consent applicaiton or a plan change, The Planner can help you prepare a submission and effectively engage in the planning process.  Having a comprehensive understanding of the Resource Management Act, The Planner will lead you through the technicalities and jargon and help to communicate your concerns to the decision-makers in a professional way.
