With ongoing changes to planning legislation, and the opening up of opportunities for LEP modifications under the planning proposal system, council planning staff are under continued pressure to produce results.
Locale Consulting has both prepared and reviewed planning proposals for local government clients, particularly in situations where an independent assessment is needed. With our commitment to government and to not act on behalf of developers, we have the benefit of being independent whilst remaining cognisant of the constraints of government. Our projects in this area have included “additional permitted use” style LEP amendments to allow enhancement and upgrade of public facilities, to assessment of a “rezoning” for a new transportation hub and provision of a new housing estate.
Our independence in planning proposal preparation or review serves to ensure that a balance can be made between a councils strategic planning objectives whilst recognising the need for change in LEP provisions are part and parcel of the modern day system.
