FORMSCAPE was approached by a construction company who sought to assist a commercial tenancy move their business into a new premisis, and to modify the premisis to suit their needs.
FORMSCAPE reviewed the proposal against the relevant planning framework, prior to preparing and lodging the Development Application. Despite the shortfall of car parking bays, it was successfully demonstrated to the Local Government that the amount of bays provided would be sufficient for the operations of the site, and that it would not adversely impact other nearby tenancies. The additional roof sign proposed was also accepted. Ultimately, Development Approval was granted, with predominantly standard conditions applied.
