Planning Division

Planning Policy & Regulatory Review – we describe the subject site and summarize the current development controls. The review provides a clear and concise accounting of what can be done with a property, what process will be required to receive approval, and what risks are involved.

Development Analysis – we explore one or more development scenarios to examine the business case for development. This analysis supports strategic decision making and helps developers move forward with the right project at the right time.

Development Approval – we act on your behalf to take your development project through the municipal approval process. We can work as part of your existing team, or engage our own sub consultants as necessary thus ensuring that you avoid unnecessary expense.

Cost Benefit Analysis – we examine the costs and revenues generated by various development proposals to determine their net present value (NPV) impact on the municipality's budget.

Municipal Background Studies – successful municipal plans start with a clear understanding of the forces that drive property demand and real estate values. We access, integrate and interpret demographic, psychographic and real estate datasets to help build a complete understanding of the community… where it is now and where it could go in the future.
