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.
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
