WHAT ARE CLIENTS SAY

"Just wanted to let you know that we are delighted to have received approval for our Resource Consent application. The team at Planning Plus made the submission and processing of our not so easy Resource Consent application go through like a dream. We're so pleased we took our architects advice to instruct your company to manage the application process for us, as it meant not only a smooth process, but far less headaches along the way knowing that experts were handling it on our behalf. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else."

I recently dealt with Hannah Thomson to obtain resource consent planning advice. Hannah was accommodating and responsive. She did a brilliant job of considering the issue from my perspective in order to give the appropriate advice, and was stress-free to deal with throughout. I would certainly use Planning Plus again in the future.

“I found Anne incredibly professional to deal with and always willing to go the extra mile.  Her attention to detail helped us put together a very strong case to get Resource Consent at a time Council changeover to the new Unitary plan made it challenging.  Council even complemented the AEE she wrote, saying it was very well written.  She replied promptly, was happy to explain everything thoroughly to us, and was always a  pleasure to deal with”

We recently brought a section on the beach to build the house of our dreams. We were recommended to contact Hannah at Planning Plus to help with the submission of our Resource Consent through the Bay of Plenty Council and we are as so grateful we did. We cannot thank Hannah enough for all her professional help and advice. We knew to expect more obstacles than normal building on the beach however we were not prepared for just how many. Hannah was so helpful and kept us informed of any potential issues that may arise and how to overcome these. Building can be stressful and thanks to Hannah and her resourcefulness, this part of the building process was handled brilliantly taking the pressure off us.

 

We would recommend Hannah and the team at Planning Plus to others.

We are small to medium size residential building company that will continue to use Planning Plus in the future for all our up coming projects, feel free to contact if you have any queries.

"Many thanks for your recent work for me

I recently had to obtain a Resource Consent for a project I was undertaking. At late notice the Council required a Resource Consent had to be applied for and I contacted Planning Plus to check their availability to prepare detail for the Resource Consent application. Planning Plus was helpful and prepared to undertake the task at short notice, and duly prepared the necessary documentation for submitting to Council quickly. The Resource Consent was processed by Council and the Consent was issued without any further hassle, thanks to Planning Plus's complete documentation".

We have dealt with Anne Hessell from Planning Plus for a number of subdivisions and could not recommend her highly enough.  Anne is incredibly knowledgeable, efficient and well versed in negotiating the myriad of complex and overwhelming rules, regulations, decisions and curve balls thrown at you during the subdivision process.  Anne was invaluable in achieving compromises and agreeable outcomes with the council to ensure we were able to proceed with our subdivisions.  We operate in the construction industry and even with 30 years experience dealing with councils the money spent engaging the services of a top class Town Planner is worth every cent.

"I have no hesitation in strongly supporting the recommendation made to us and am certain that the quiet professionalism demonstrated by Hannah and her firm contributed significantly to the success and timeliness of the resource consent. I strongly recommend her and her firm to others. 

 

It soon became apparent that there were significant differences of opinion within Council as to the future of such applications and, having heard horror stories of long delays, difficult dealings with Council’s staff, etc, we were advised to use the services of a planning consultant to assist us in preparation of any application. We selected Hannah Thomson, principal of Planning Plus, following a recommendation from a mutual friend and, following a relatively brief meeting, it immediately became clear that Hannah had a very close understanding of Council requirements.

Then, in one site visit, and a “pre-application meeting” with Council, Hannah identified all the potential issues and prepared a 17-page application in which possible issues with its size, building separation distance and potentially sewerage issues were specifically addressed.

Throughout the process she kept us fully informed and I am delighted to say that the application went smoothly through the Council’s process without delay, resulting in the resource consent being issued within their 20-day target.

I have no hesitation in strongly supporting the recommendation made to us and am certain that the quiet professionalism demonstrated by Hannah and her firm contributed significantly to the success and timeliness of the resource consent. I strongly recommend her and her firm to others".

"Planning Plus took care of everything for us with our recent resource consent. Planning Plus produced a comprehensive report covering all required aspects needed for our application, which resulted in the application sailing through the Council process without a hitch. The professional assistance from Planning Plus really sped up the whole process, which is important to us as property developers.

 

Planning Plus’ breadth of experience and knowledge of information and process was invaluable to us and we will be using them again in the future. We have no hesitation in highly recommending their services".

- Byrne Homes

"Thank you so much for fantastic service and incredibly thorough advice. Your report for us and answering our questions was so easy to understand, it made all the various planning jargon we had been struggling to understand crystal clear. Your expert advice was invaluable; you spotted and explained the importance of so many different issues that we needed to be aware of and hadn’t thought about. Because of your advice were able to make an informed decision we felt confident about. Many thanks also for putting together such a thorough report for us on such a short timeframe, the service was above and beyond".

- Byrne Homes

"We selected Planning Plus more or less opportunistically from a list of planning advisors. This turned out to be very fortuitous as the service they have provided has been exceptional. Their network of contacts, knowledge of district planning, attention to detail and commitment to obtaining the best outcome for the client has delivered a very good outcome for us. We would unreservedly recommend Planning Plus".

- Chris and Kathy Hatton

"The team at Planning Plus recently prepared and lodged a Resource Consent for us with Auckland Council. They were always available to discuss any issues that arose and made the process easy without any unnecessary stress. All matters were dealt with quickly and professionally. We would highly recommend their services to anyone needing assistance within this complex environment.
Thanks again".

- Chris and Kim Spurr

"We found Planning Plus extremely reliable, knowledgeable and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else seeking assistance with the resource consent process".

- Jo Vautier

"Just wanted to let you know that myself and Kelly were so pleased with your company's assistance in getting our not so easy ‘Resource Consent ‘ approved by Auckland Council. To be honest we don’t know how much time and a struggle it could have been without your company.We look forward to without any doubt using your services again in the very near future".
