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 a health consulting room can be extremely hard and tiring and dealing with local government 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, every day. 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.
Residential component – A standard dwelling house can ideally be converted into health consulting rooms within a residential area. However, while planning law does not require health consulting rooms to retain a residential component, some councils still disagree. How do you go about demonstrating to the council in your DA that the council view may be at odds with planning law associated with health consulting rooms?
Residential zones – Health consulting rooms are often developed in residential areas or zones. This can attract extra scrutinisation from the council concerning potential impact on adjacent residential amenity, noise generation, privacy, waste disposal and potential parking congestion on the street. This is something you will need to elaborate upon in the application and demonstrate that your health consulting rooms will not have a detrimental impact on the surrounding residential amenity.
Parking – The parking rate for health consulting rooms is determined by the number of healthcare professionals employed at the premise. But not all employees at the premise are in fact health care professionals. How do you convince the council that a lesser number of on site parking spaces can be provided because not all employees will be health care professionals?
Surgical waste – How do you deal with the complex waste disposal arrangements in your DA for your health consulting room? What do you need to show in your DA that the safe storage, disposal and transport of surgical wastes will be done to the standards expected under the NSW health regulations?
