Resource Management proposals require expert advice from transport specialists who can anticipate problems before they eventuate and mitigate issues where possible.
Establishing the viability of a new development or extending an existing development includes determining the transport effects on the existing road network and the ongoing requirements of policy from local to national levels. Good advice, mitigation and representation are essential to enable ongoing good planning in New Zealand cities.
Abley Transportation Consultants provide independent advice for developers and planning authorities when analysing transport effects of new or existing developments. This includes reviewing effects against local, regional and national policy documents and providing recommendations and strategic thinking to solve problems. Our specialist team can also present expert witness at hearings and to the Environment Court.
Private Plan change proposals require expert advice from transport specialists who can anticipate problems before they eventuate and mitigate issues where possible.
A Private Plan Change revises or introduces new provisions into the District Plan and can involve zone changes, or amendments to rules. As any new development will effect the community in some way the plan change is required to go through public notification, submission and hearing processes, including the right of appeal to the Environment Court.
Abley Transportation Consultants assess effects against good engineering practice and rules of planning documents. Our expert staff have experience throughout the entire Plan Change process from reading through submissions to presenting evidence at hearings or, if necessary, in Environment Court.
