We understand that the plan change process is a highly complex one, and that it includes significant obligations for consultation, including with iwi. Our project management and professional skills ensure that all relevant inputs are managed effectively, and to timeframe.

Cato Bolam planners are also available to assist in assessing, and if necessary, challenging plan changes proposed by others, and in plan review processes. As an example, our planners were extensively involved in the recent Auckland Unitary Plan process.

Structure / Master Planning

Large or long term, staged developments often benefit from structure planning or master planning. This technique is often required by Councils, for instance to support plan changes. It can also be most helpful in order to establish a concept and gain a big picture of the philosophy desired to be achieved for a site or area.

Our staff have experience in a range of structure planning and master planning projects. We can lead project groups or contribute our planning consultant expertise to wider groups set up by our clients or others. We can also provide inputs from the discrete specialist areas we undertake, in the form of background reports or testing of options.
