Our Vision: 50 Years & 19,786 Projects
Our story all began with a vision to make the council approval process accessible, even simpler, for Australian’s. But How? Read on.
Rewind to 1967. With Elvis sideburns, bell-bottom trousers and the signature 60’s moustache, Max Fragar confidently sailed into a town planning career of which he would make a massive success and be admirably recognised for decades later. After 25 years in senior local government, Max Fragar understood how valuable a council approval is for a family, individual or business.
For most Australian’s the time, stress and hassle of achieving council approval was a very real challenge.
In 1996 our firm (originally Max Fragar & Associates) was born with the simple mission to simplify, even streamline, the council approval process for Australians. As a Registered Planner Plus (EIA), and one of only a handful of Life Fellows of the Planning Institute of Australia in the country, Max Fragar could be said to be a Jedi Knight of Town Planning.
Max’s son Colin Fragar partnered with his Dad in 2011 to rebrand to ‘Fragar Planning & Development: The Council Approval Experts’ and continued on the vision and commitment to make the council approval process accessible to more people. We have recently rebranded from Council Approval Experts to Council Approval Group to better encapsulate the full suite of council approval services we offer.
People say there is no other firm in Australia that has the experience in dealing with local government approvals than we do.
Today, after 25 years in business, our team of over 20 town planners, architects, and local government specialists have helped over 19,786 people navigate council approval. Our in-house team specializes in helping property and business owners like yourself navigate the approval process from any council.
We proudly continue the admirable and worthwhile quest and mission that Max Fragar envisioned all those years ago. You will find strength in the depth of our team and confidence in the breadth of our experience.
