So glad I called Altus. Joe told it straight from the start and gave me some good ideas and avenues to follow up on first which could possibly save me time and money.
Our family highly recommend Altus Planning. Joe was very knowledgeable and professional. We are novices when it came to subdividing our block but with the guidance Joe provided, council approval was possible.
We had contemplated putting in an application to subdivide our property but did not know where to start, A friend recommended that we contact Altus Planning. This turned out to be very good advice. Ben Laycock told us the steps which we needed to take and liaised with both local and state governments on our behalf.
Ben is very customer focused and dealt with us in a professional manner. He kept in contact throughout the entire process and we received the planning approval. We too will be recommending Altus Planning.
Ben and the team at Altus have been a pleasure to deal with. Very professional, informative and most importantly have navigated us through the council application process with great results. Thanks team!
After our proposed house plans were repeatable knocked back by Council, I had the good fortune to discuss our situation with a friend who gave me the contact details of Altus Planning.
My wife Hannah and myself cannot recommend Altus Planning highly enough and anyone in the unfortunate situation of having to go the path to SAT be reassured that you are in the best of hands.
Joe and his team were true to their words, they didn't overstate their opinions and helped bring about correct, orderly and proper planning
My clients and I are truly grateful for their professional responsibility and thoroughness - very much appreciated Joe. I highly recommend their planning services.
Altus Planning have assisted us on multiple occasions
Each time Altus has provided exceptional service with favorable results. Would recommend without a doubt!
