We are property developers and subdividers ourselves.
We have seen every permutation that can gpo right or wrong in the 35 subdivisions that we have done. So we know what it's like to be in the ground. So we have done stormwater. water supply, sewerage and all the other stuff 35 times !!
We don't muck around with other types of town planning applications. We specialise only in Small Lot Subdivisions.
Some "Professional" Town Planners might only do one subdivision application a year. So how would they get experience about services in the ground ?
I refer to the book - " Make Millions from Small Lot Subdivisions ", which is available for sale on this website. It takes you through evrything in subdivisions. It also teaches you about how to be a town planner. At least you can talk to town planners even if you dont want to be one yourself.
Most other town planners know nothing about services in the ground. So they can't talk about any services with you. They simply refer you to a consulting engineer. Yes , you will need a consulting engineer usually, at some point, but wouldn't it be good to be able to talk to the town planner abotut all the services as well ?
A good town planner will have less information requests from the Council after you lodge the town planning application. I have seen some town planning applications that are 70 pages long and the first question the council asked was "WHERE IS THE SUBDIVISION PLAN ? "
We offer free preparation of a subdivision plan for your block, in degrees, minutes, seconds amd , and millimetres. This can be drawn up within a few hours in CAD format and DWG. So all the consultants can talk to each other.
At the start you should ask some questions like -
- Will my town planner do a free Plan of Subdivison ?
