If you’re feeling overwhelmed or drowning in endless paperwork and compliance, you’re not alone. The planning system is complex and can be frustrating for business owners.
Putting together an application for a car park can be extremely hard and tiring and dealing with council can be a nightmare, not to mention the whole process can be very expensive in both time and money. Plus, we’re pretty sure, you have better things to do… That’s where we fit in!
It’s what we do, all day, everyday. With a team of 10+ highly knowledgeable and experienced town planners, property consultants, registered architect and draftsman we’re pretty good at what we do.
Stormwater – You have an idea to create a car park in one the many bustling areas of NSW to accommodate visitors, but have you considered the planning rules for stormwater? How much stormwater run-off will be generated and how will it be managed? Do you know someone who can develop these plans for you?
Aesthetics – Is the car park servicing one building or many? Will it be adequate based on the planning rules? Does it fit with the character of the neighbourhood? Does the local government plans indicate a desire or need for additional parking to be provided or are they more favourable to development that encourages alternative and public modes of transportation?
Traffic generation – Will access to the car park place a burden on existing roads, generate additional traffic, or cause a disturbance or hazard in the flow of traffic? Do you know a contractor that you can trust to create a traffic report if necessary?
Security – Car parks must be safe for the individuals using them. What safety precautions are required by the planning regulations?
We understand that getting to the point of having the right approval for your car park is not an easy journey. It’s one that needs the best experience the industry has to offer. That’s why we’re here to help… We’d love to make your council approval journey for a car park simple and as pain free as possible.
We’ve worked on many car parking proposals and have dedicated town planners and designers that specialise in this type of development application.
You can glean from the wisdom we’ve gained from all of our past projects. 25 years of being in the industry and our 50 consecutive years of experience has taught us a few things.

“They had the skills, knowledge and experience to get a better outcome than I had hoped for. I would recommend them for any development application whether the project is straightforward or more complicated.”
I initially had many conversations with council, mates, and builders who all seemed to provide more confusion rather than solutions. When I contacted the council directly they told me I couldn’t do what I wanted to do. Then a builder told me it would be too difficult and even my friends told me I should just sell the property and move on… Well, I am glad I found Council Approval Group… They got me my DA approval on the first lodgement!
To get that success rate it has only come after helping over 12,000 people. We’ve worked hard to smooth out all the kinks before they appear by carrying out this Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA) on your property. It works a treat, especially for what it can do for you, the journey of the project and its future.
We could make up a fantasied timeframe to wow you, but to be straight up the length of getting an approval is dependent on the project development type, the local council, who examines your application within council, location of the property within the local council and on the property itself, and the list goes on. The approval process will no doubt take longer than you expect because we are dealing with administrative red tape.
But what our team has done has studied the 12,000+ applications we have been involved in and analysed the 300+ flight years of team council approval experience to create a formidable system.
So to answer the question, how long does it take for us to get council approval? The fastest in our industry.
We have over 20 team members lead by our founder Max Fragar with his 50 consecutive years of town planning and council approval knowledge. The team is made up of skilled town planners, property consultants and designers that we have hand picked to work on your project. It turns out that we’ve had over 300 collective years of experience working and dealing with local government councils.
What does this mean for you? One word, streamline. We know how to talk the council lingo, can perceive even predict the ins and outs of those council hoops of fire, and understand the nitty gritty to work tirelessly to achieve the best outcomes for our clients and their projects.
