Before committing to a site/premises

Selecting the right location for your business requires thoughtful consideration of various elements including zoning regulations, access to transportation, potential for growth, and adherence to health and safety standards. Our pre-lodgement meetings are a good starting place to discuss any questions you may have about the permits and licences you need. They are free and no appointment is needed.

It's highly advisable to seek planning and building approvals before entering into a lease agreement or buying a property. In cases where obtaining these approvals in advance isn't feasible, make sure that any agreement to purchase is conditional upon obtaining all the necessary permissions from the Council. This approach helps ensure that the selected site aligns with all relevant regulations and requirements.
