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 an application for a truck depot 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.
Parking – You have fantastic ideas for your truck depot business, but have you considered parking? Will you have clients coming to the main office? How many staff will be on-site? Will drivers be parking trucks on-site and will they need to park personal vehicles on-site? How many truck parking spaces are needed?
Environmental Impacts – Truck depots tend to require large hardstand surfaces. Erosion and sediment control and stormwater management will be important to planning and mitigating for environmental impacts. Will truck maintenance be provided on site? Will hazardous liquids be stored on the premises?
Outdoor storage – Truck depots sometimes require outdoor storage. What will be stored outside? How will you protect it from the elements? Have you considered security and screening so that the storage is not visible from the road. Some councils do not allow outdoor storage, have you considered any alternatives to outdoor storage?
Traffic generation – How many large vehicles will be coming and going from the site? Will the area for parking and manoeuvring be adequate, particularly swept paths? All vehicles must be able to enter and exit in a forward position. Are the area roads capable of handling the type of traffic generated?
We understand that getting to the point of having the right approval for your truck depot is not an easy journey. It’s one that needs the best experience the industry has to offer. That’s why we’re here to help… We’d love to make your council approval journey for a truck depot simple and as pain-free as possible.
We’ve worked on many truck depot projects and have dedicated town planners and designers that specialise in this type of development application.
You can glean from the wisdom we’ve gained from all of our past projects. 25 years of being in the industry and our 50 consecutive years of experience have taught us a few things.

The phone discussion was very informative and has really helped me to understand things from a practical point of view
Council Approval Group was referred to me by someone who gave a glowing reference. And I’m over the moon about the result. They gave me confidence throughout the whole process. They were honest from day one and that gave me a lot of certainty about my subdivision. I couldn’t be happier.
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.
