How to Choose a Land Development Consultant?

If you’re in the process of planning a land development, you’ll need professional support from the outset of your project. Any kind of development includes many planning, compliance, and other factors. A good development consultant can help you speed up the development process, while also protecting your interests.

Why Contract a Development Consultant?

Development consultants provide expertise for all sides of your project. This role relates to all aspects of development and is critically important to ensuring the success of your project.

Their consultancy services include:

  • Planning expertise, including help with site issues, infrastructure, access, and related issues
  • Advice regarding title and zoning issues
  • Compliance support during the planning and application processes
  • Technical help and guidance for surveying work

 These are all key issues in any kind of development. Many developments suffer quite unnecessarily as a result of unfamiliarity with basic processes. Compliance issues, in particular, can delay construction or even “sabotage” the development at the application stage. These types of errors can stop a multi-million-dollar development in its tracks.

Good consultants ensure that the entire development process, from planning and surveying through to application and completion, run smoothly and efficiently saving time and money.

Choosing Your Development Consultants

There’s one very simple question that can help you define your development consultancy needs:

Can your consultants deliver all the services you need?

The answer to this question must be an unequivocal “Yes”. You need proof that your consultants will deliver and this is your checklist:

  • Planning expertise
  • Surveying
  • Title guidance
  • Compliance expertise including all possible project issues
  • Proven track record in your type of development
  • Good outcomes, with testimonials from other developers

The Right Experts

Most importantly, you need consultants who understand your type of development. If you’re a commercial or industrial developer or a residential specialist, you need people who clearly understand your needs.

The right development consultants for your project will have a good portfolio of completed projects in your field. They will know the possible problems; they can anticipate your project’s requirements and provide dependable guidance.

At the planning stage, they can help you avoid problems and ensure that all aspects of planning are trouble-free. Your plan will be perfect and ready for your development application to proceed without issues.

These superior levels of expertise are what make good development consultants so valuable in improving project efficiencies at all levels. Even with complex, large-scale developments that may involve multiple types of construction, land use and development, a superior consultant can manage any issue for you.
