Needing Council Approval for an

Educational Facility

Here Are Some of the Issues You’ll Face…

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 a council application for an educational facility 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.

What Rules Do I Need to Comply With?

Having worked on around 40 education facility projects over the past 25 years common compliance rules and questions to consider are:

1. Environmental impacts- Environmental impacts such as stormwater drainage, bushfire vulnerability, and steep slopes must be carefully considered, particularly if there are large numbers of students or young students planned.

2. Car Parking – Any application to do with an educational facility such as a school will be carefully looked at in terms of car parking. Will you be seen to be placing an extra burden on existing infrastructure? How do you know what is adequate? We will need to look carefully at how you get around or work within the town planning rules?

3. Zoning & Restaints – Did you know that schools and educational facilities are only permissible in certain areas or zones? Depending upon the age of the students or type of educational facility other concerns from council are likely to come up.

4. Traffic Generation – Is the proposed site and surrounding roads capable of handling additional traffic generated? How will the hours of operation impact traffic generation and traffic patterns?

5. Safety – Internal and external layout, lighting, fencing, building security, and disabled access are a few of the considerations that will need to be made with regard to safety for a school or educational facility.

We understand & we have all the answers you need...

Based on our 25 year history, we have a 98% success rate in achieving council approval. Of course this is based on following our proven systems and our 7 step formula. The key? Our Preliminary Planning Assessment, inclusive of your personal Project Strategy Session.

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.

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.
