Sometimes it’s what you know and sometimes it’s who. With us, you get the benefit of both. With established relationships with councils throughout the South Island and an in-depth knowledge of their internal processes, our planning team offer creative and innovative solutions grounded in legislation and requirements.
Our planning team provides you with essential information regarding your site and development constraints. Our inside knowledge of council operations means you have the best consent information submitted on your behalf, streamlining the process and reducing costs.
The specialist planning expertise within Eliot Sinclair covers the entire planning spectrum - from private plan changes and large land development projects, to providing resource management planning advice for site specific issues in residential, commercial, industrial and rural areas. We also provide advice on specific planning matters including social and community housing, multi-unit developments, retirement villages, health centres and childcare centres.
Our experienced planners are extremely versatile and work closely within our wider multidisciplinary team to advise on large-scale land development projects including earthworks, engineering and environmental matters.
With offices in Christchurch, Queenstown and Hokitika, and staff frequently in Nelson, our planning services are available for projects throughout the South Island.
