We are a Hawkes Bay based Planning Consultancy offering Planning, Land Development and Resource Management services to private developers and individuals across Hawkes Bay and New Zealand Wide.

Our qualified Planner's have over 10 years of experience working on a broad range of projects throughout New Zealand and are familiar with the requirements of many Council District Plans and Regional Plans.

We have successfully obtained resource consents for projects of various types and scales, including:

A small scale infill residential subdivisions and housing developments

  Large scale Greenfield subdivisions in new development areas
  Industrial subdivisions and landuse activities
  'Out of Zone activities - industrial uses in rural areas and wineries
  Comprehensive housing developments - retirement villages, apartments and extra density housing
  Rural farm park subdivisions
  Rural lifestyle lot subdivisions
  Private plan changes and rezoning of land for residential development
  Discharge consents
  Certificates of compliance

Our services include representation for applicants and provision of expert evidence at Council and Environment Court hearing proceedings.

Types of Resource Consent we complete:

A. Consent - is required when an activity is not permitted
by a Regional or District Plan or where a rule in a Plan
is contravened, or for activities seeking to establish out
of zone.

B. Subdivision Consent - is required to create extra titles for dwellings or land.

C. Certificates of Compliance - apply for permitted activities and can be sought to secure a development right for up to 5 years.


D. Discharge Consent - for discharges to land, air, or water (including discharge of stormwater).

E. Private Plan Changes - this may involve a range of applications from re-zoning land by applying existing rules
to new areas, or even writing entirely new objectives, policies and rules for specific activities in specific locations.


Planning and Valuation: One Stop Shop

The ultimate value of land is directly related to its land use or development potential.  By obtaining landuse or subdivision consent the value of a property can be significantly enhanced.

Through a close association with Snow Wilkins (Registered Valuers) and land development consultants we are able to provide not only an analysis of potential landuse and development options, but also the likely development costs, returns
and added value in the current market place - all this from one office
