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.
