Welcome to my website

I am a town planning consultant and resource management consultant based in Auckland New Zealand.

I am an expert in solving property issues and create value for my clients by providing up to date information on the Auckland Unitary Plan and District Plans.

I help property and business owners who want to  build or alter their property, or start a new business, by providing high quality resource consent applications and by managing those applications through Council processes.

I also help Councils develop simple, effective and robust plans and provide full supporting studies and reports for the plans and plan changes.

Whether you are a Council or a property owner, I provide personalised and value for money planning consultant services and products.  You get to deal directly with me and I will do the work myself.  And of course all my town planning consultant services can be tailored to meet your needs and budget.

What's New

The Auckland Unitary Plan

The Auckland Unitary Plan was made partly operative in November 2016.  This means that most provisions in the plan are now operative and can be relied on to manage development.  There are a small number of appeals still outstanding.  Only a few parts of the plan that have been appealed are not yet operative.

I can assist you by reviewing the partly operative plan and helping you to understand what it now means for your property.  If you would like me undertake an assessment for your property simply contact me here.

I can also make a presentation to your organisation outlining the effects of the final Unitary Plan in a way tailored to the needs of your organisation. Contact me here.

Unitary Plan Seminars

Now that the Unitary Plan is partly operative I am running seminars outlining just what the plan will mean for you or your clients.  If you are a real estate agent, architect or own (or want to own) a property these seminars will be valuable to you.   Please contact me if you would like to join a seminar or run a seminar for your organisation.
