Is your property located in a designated Farming Zone?
Does your property fall within the Farming Zone (FZ), Rural Living Zone or Rural Conservation Zone? This zone can be somewhat restrictive in circumstances and difficult to navigate. AS Planning have an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the Farming Zone and have achieved countless Planning Permits triggered under the zone; whether it be achieving a respectable built form within the agricultural landscape, the need to remove trees (Clause 52.17 Native Vegetation may apply) or a use of the land which isn’t for farming purposes. AS Planning are also able to help arrange the preparation of a Land Capability Assessment (LCA), which is a common requirement for development applications within the Farming Zone.
Does a Heritage Overlay apply to you property?
Here at AS Planning we have an abundance of experience in working with Heritage Overlays and the particular Schedule and Statement of Significance that applies to a heritage site. We understand and appreciate both the need to respect and respond to the heritage values of a site while also achieving an acceptable outcome for the client and/or owner of the heritage property. We have a proven track record of working with Council and their Heritage Advisor(s) and our clients to achieve heritage approvals that all parties are happy with. So talk to us today about maximising your heritage property!
