Planning Applications

Planning permits are issued by local councils and give permission to develop or use land in a certain way.

It’s important to engage a town planner early on during the application process, largely to ensure your development potential is maximised and to verify your development proposal is compliant. Getting it right from the beginning saves time and money.
