Attention to detail and a wealth of industry knowledge is the key to expediting your council approvals process. Engaging a town planner consultant who knows the industry inside and out, will set you firmly on the right path.
We always begin by completing a comprehensive Preliminary Feasibility Assessment. This provides us with everything we need to devise the best plan for your project to succeed.
The preliminary assessment also gives you the opportunity to answer all of the burning questions you may have. You’ll uncover the following:
Essentially, town planning is the process of local councils considering whether proposed developments are suited to an area. For instance, inner-city Sydney town planners need to observe different environmental considerations than one from a rural town would. Achieving council approval for any stage of a project is very reliant on the expertise of those submitting the requests.
Every construction project is unique, and so is the process of having it approved. Whether residential or commercial, there will always be individual requirements and preferences. From the design of the property, the choice of materials to use, and even the colour of paint, the variety of choices will shape the construction process.
In an effort to create sustainable properties across Australia, the government now requires careful urban planning. All construction plans must integrate well with the natural environment.
With population growth at an all-time high in areas such as Sydney, town planners are in high demand. Councils are now recognising that growth and modernisation are a real threat to environmental degradation. The role of town planner consultants is now critical in the construction process. The government understands that the environment is vulnerable to the stresses of climate change and that careful urban planning is essential.
Town planners work with different construction professionals including structural engineers, project managers and architects. It is the responsibility of the town planner to foresee and communicate needs while understanding the economic constraints. They will also offer insights on how to improve the quality of life in a community.
For this to happen, property owners and investors should engage a town planner from the outset of their project. The town planner will assist in submitting the project for council approval.
Once you have been approved, and your builder is on board, the focus moves to construction supervision and certification. This includes town planning services.
Close monitoring by your town planner along the way ensures that the best practices in sustainable construction are achieved. Your property will then become an integral part of an environmentally sound community. It will reflect a balance of modernity, convenience and respect for the environment.
Although our town planners Sydney home base services the city and surrounding areas, we are available to assist projects Australia wide. Visit our Planning Services page to learn more about what Local Approvals can offer you and your project.
