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 homeowners.
Putting together a council application for your farm stay 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.
Safety of Guests – Council will likely look at the safety of future guests in the context of fire safety as well as any risks from farm operations.
Environmental impact – Will there be any new construction or expansion of existing buildings to accommodate guests? Will any land be taken out of primary production? Can the existing infrastructure on-site handle the additional waste and water usage of guests?
Business plan – Will you operate year round? How many guests will you accommodate? What activities will guests be permitted to participate in? How will you handle safety?
Predominant use – How will you show council that your farm continues to be the predominant use and not just ancillary to the farm stay accommodation? These will be some of the things to consider when embarking on farm stay development for your project
