Our expertise allows us to customise our services to your specific requirements and preferences.

Do I need a city planner?

Development can be a rewarding and exciting experience, but it can also be stressful and risky if you encounter complications during the process. Searching for city planning services and firms to determine if they are suitable for your project can be daunting. We, building certifiers Australia, will help you in:

  • Site due diligence and feasibility phase: application consultation, site constraints, suitability of use, timeframe and risk.
  • Pre lodgement and BCC development application phase.
  • Development assessment and BCC approval phase: responding to information requests, managing the Council’s assessment team and decision-making process, advising on conditions, seeking modifications, or negotiating decisions
  • Post-approval or construction phase; complete project delivery.
  • Plan sealing and land titling phase.
