What to expect with a Development Application with us

Introductory Phone Call
Once you have made contact with us with your enquiry you will receive a phone call from one of our friendly staff to have a brief discussion about your project. We will ask some simple questions to determine how we can best help you. Following this a quote will be prepared and sent to you via email for your review.
Planner Assigned to you
Once you have accepted our quote and terms one of our town planners will be assigned to your project. A site meeting or a more in-depth phone conversation will be organised so that they will be able to manage your project efficiently with all the information they require.
Outline of development
Following your meeting with the planner, an outline of your development project will be prepared and sent to you. This outline will have a summary of your discussions, next steps in the project including timeframes, and quotes from any subcontractors. This will give you a good idea of what to expect as part of the project and a realistic timeframe.
Working on the application
This is where we have our heads down working hard on your project. We will be preparing our reports, corresponding with Council or subcontractors and making sure we have everything we need for lodgement. We will send you regular updates advising of our progress and will send you the draft versions of reports to review.
Submission
Once we have finalised all reports and plans we will finalise everything for submission. We will print and prepare everything and submit the application to Council. Following the submission we will send you confirmation and quietly celebrate another successful lodgement.
Project Management
This part of the project is the fun part. We keep our communication lines open with Council and try to be on their heals to expedite your application is quick as possible. Once Council have determined the application we will present you with your approved application and give you a run down of any conditions as part of the approval.
