What to know before you talk to a town planner at Council? G’day, I’m Max Fragar Council from the Approval Group.
What to know before you talk to CouncilI’ve been doing this for about 50 years. It’s very important to know your rights, to know exactly what you want, and also to know what the rules are and what your opportunities are. You need to know those things before you talk to the council.
There’s an old saying that says “what they don’t know won’t hurt them.” So the danger is if you’re not informed on your rights, and clarify your ambitions, you can say something to council that jeopardizes the best project.
