Why There Is No Such Thing As “Too Soon” When It Comes To Receiving Advice From a Town Planning Consultant


Whether you are building something new on your property or changing the way it is used, chances are you are going to need help with town planning.

But how soon is too soon when it comes to involving a town planning consultant in your next property project?

According to Terrain Consulting Group Director Lorenzo Rigoni, there really is no such thing as too soon.

“Ideally a customer comes to us for advice at the very inception of the ideas,” he says in the video below.

“In that way, we can understand their goals, their objectives, we can identify any barriers and work out a strategy to move forward.”

Here are three reasons why earlier is better when it comes to contacting a trusted town planning consultant.

Know what’s possible before you make a town planning application

Receiving advice from a Melbourne town planner at the earliest inception of any ideas pertaining to any changes you want to make to your property will help to ensure you receive a complete picture of your property and what is possible on it.

By understanding your timelines, your ideal outcomes and your vision for the project, Terrain Consulting Group can tailor a solution perfect for you.

Alternatively, if you are at the exploration phase and looking to understand what is possible, then consulting a town planner will help illuminate the possibilities for you.

A town planning report from a trusted planning consultant will give you a realistic outline of what steps need to be taken to achieve your goals, as well as potentially opening up new possibilities you may not have considered, or even thought possible.

This is crucial to the success of your town planning application in the long run and will help ensure you are able to make any crucial adjustments or improvements to your plans before you embark on the road to designs and applications.
