Town & Regional Planning

“Town planning is the process of managing land resources. It involves the control of existing and new developments, as well as strategy preparation to ensure manage future requirements. It is a dynamic process that changes in response to policy, development proposals and local needs.”

The first step behind a proposed development is to verify the land legal compliance of the prospective property, in terms of zoning and surveyor general information. Most potential developments fall through from Inception Phase as the basic land legal compliance tick box exercise is not performed.
