Residential Flat Building

Here Are Some of the Issues You’ll Face…

Residential Flat Building

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 investors.

Putting together a Residential Flat Building application 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 over 100 residential flat building projects over the past 25 years common compliance rules and questions to consider are:

1.

Car parking – Car parking requirements for Residential Flat Buildings are stringent and, if not met, can prevent the project from happening. Yet, there are sometimes alternatives to the rules. For example, a council may agree to less parking if the development provided alternative contributions towards public infrastructure. So then, how do you know what type of contribution or agreement is appropriate and how do you negotiate these solutions with your council?

2.

Scale of development – Developers need to gain maximum returns on their Residential Flat Buildings, and this can put them on a collision course with council, who want to see a lower density of development to preserve streetscape character. How do you go about balancing economic returns with streetscape character?

3.

Heritage conservation areas – New growth in Heritage Conservation Areas can be very unpopular with local residents. However, a good appreciation of what constitutes a Heritage Conservation Area, and a sensitive design, will result in positive contribution to the area with less likelihood of resident objection.

4.

Overlooking of neighbours – Residential Flat Buildings can often create privacy impacts on neighbouring properties because of overlooking from apartment windows and balconies. How do you design a building that ensures that these impacts are minimised and gives Council comfort that overlooking is not a big issue?

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.

We have over 20 team members lead by our founder Max Fragar with his 50 consecutive years of town planning and council approval knowledge. The team is made up of skilled town planners, property consultants and designers that we have hand picked to work on your project. It turns out that we’ve had over 300 collective years of experience working and dealing with local government councils.

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.
