Making it easy to get your DA approval

Getting Council approval is a notoriously convoluted process and getting the paperwork right is crucial. Get it wrong and they will throw it back at you with endless requests for information and objections. Let us remove the stress, hassle and time out of dealing with Council so that you can focus on the other, more important parts of your project.

“ Wes has great experience in local government. He knows how to ride the horse and is clever at working the system in getting the best results for us. He can cut through the bull#@! and ask the dynamic questions about what the council town planners need.

He has got some wonderful developments across the line for us.

I love his honesty, he keeps me well informed and always gives us options up-front. So we know what we are dealing with.
