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 eco tourist facility application 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.
Defining your development – Did you know your plan for an eco tourist facility may actually be considered a form of tourist and visitor accommodation? Would it be in your best interest to classify your eco tourist facility as tourist and visitor accommodation? What may seem like very minor details in your business plans could make the difference in the type of approval required.
Environmentally sensitive lands – To have a viable plan for an eco tourist facility may mean that your chosen site needs to provide for some environmentally sensitive or similar land. But you may ask what constitutes environmentally sensitive land, and does your land have any special environmental characteristics?
Removal of vegetation – While there may be restrictions to tree and vegetation removal to make way for any development, there may be extra restrictions if you are thinking of developing a site for an eco-tourist facility, especially if it is located in an environmental zone. This is something you will need to elaborate upon in the application and show that the site can be developed with the minimum amount of tree and vegetation removal.
Special nexus – it’s important your land will have a connection with any special ecological, environmental and cultural values of the surrounding land, in addressing eco friendly principals such as solar energy, water saving devices and use of sensitive building materials.
