We highly recommend a site investigation be undertaken by a planning / development approval consultant.  For a cost of $295.00 + GST an independent consultant will undertake the following:

  • Review a certificate of title not more than 3 months old to ensures no one is blindsided by a covenant restricting the land use from the proposed activity.
  • Site Due Diligence Review – this step ensures all possible hurdles are uncovered prior to lodgement stage. After a desktop assessment, they would go through the zone and overlay information as well as the local planning scheme to ensure they can provide the most thorough advice for the project from a planning perspective.
  • Memo of Planning Advice – Once the consultant has completed the site investigation and determined any planning concerns, they will provide a memo of advice that covers planning regulations to be considered prior to lodgement. This will also include if a planning application is needed and what type of application would be most suited to the project. The memo also includes a list of mandatory requirements that must be fulfilled prior to lodging the application. The memo covers both State and Local planning policy as well as residential codes where required.
