Planning + Resource Consent Services

Let us manage your Resource Consent

Outcome Focused / Value Added

Contact Us Today


Our approach is always outcome focused and we work closely with clients and advisors to ensure successful planning outcomes. At an early stage we like to develop a sound understanding of our clients’ interests and needs and combine this with our extensive experience and sound judgment of what will ‘fly’ and what will not to guide the development through the consenting process.

We Strive to Add Value

We know that fundamentally we have a good understanding of what planning, resource management and sustainability is about. That allows us to argue vehemently in support of our clients’ proposals and to consider different ways of achieving client objectives without taking our eye off the principles of sustainability. This also allows us to see opportunities, and to add value when we can.
