TPI can provide assistance in assessing your project and site conditions, specifically in relation to what is permissible within your local municipality’s Local Environmental Plan (LEP) and Development Control Plan (DCP). This can be done prior to engaging architects or designers, saving you time and resources.
We have experience helping clients obtain recognition for earlier built works on their properties that may not have been approved or certified by the council. Through the application process for a Building Information Certificate, we can assist in obtaining the necessary documentation and certifications for these existing structures.
Our services extend to assisting clients in gathering all the required documentation from external consultants for submitting Development Applications (DAs) and/or Construction Certificates to the council. We specialize in various types of projects, including DA approvals, complying development certification, change of use developments, land subdivision, commercial developments, industrial developments, duplexes, dual occupancy, extensions, granny flats and garage conversions, house extensions, additions to apartment buildings, shop refurbishments, home renovations, decks and pergolas, sheds, garages, pool construction, child care centres, new boarding houses, student accommodation, new apartment buildings, and shop and retail refurbishments.
TPI can support you in several ways, including:
- Writing letters and submissions to the council on your behalf
- Preparing Statements of Environmental Effects (SEEs)
- Assisting with modification applications and variations of development standards
- Handling review applications and preparing Heritage Impact Statements and Social Impact Statements
- Conducting desktop planning evaluations and providing advice
- Offering guidance on improving your DA approval
- Assisting with rezoning applications
- Reviewing development proposals and preparing objections when necessary
- Addressing unauthorized building work issues
If you need to determine what you can build on your land, have had your application refused by the council, or have been asked to seek advice from a town planner, TPI can provide the necessary assistance.
We also specialize in preparing Statements of Environmental Effects, which are essential components of development applications submitted to the council. These reports outline the expected environmental impacts of the proposed development, address compliance with development control requirements, consider impacts on neighbouring properties, outline measures to protect the environment, and provide additional written information beyond what can be shown on plans or drawings.
