Town Planning Mediation & Negotiation

Understanding agendas and personalities and managing competing interests to reach agreements is one of our core specialties. A fundamental element of our Proven Approach is to meet with decision makers early in the process, discuss all issues and seek in principle support at the earliest opportunity.

You can maximise the chances of a positive outcome of any proposal when you appoint Keen Planning early in your planning application. Involving us at the earliest stage possible allows us to lay the groundwork for success as soon as possible, heading off potential difficulties before they manifest. However, clients can engage us at any stage of the planning process and we can add value and credibility to your proposal and assist with achieving a successful outcome.

We offer a comprehensive range of town planning mediation services and our company can support your project throughout this mediation part of the process in a number of ways, including the following.

  • Represent your project at mediation meetings, Council meetings and public forums. We know what to say, how to say it and how to liaise with third party stakeholders to reduce areas of disagreement.
  • Assist project team members to appraise your proposal and minimise potential objections.
  • Recommend practical solutions to maximise the success of your project.
  • Seek agreements with objectors.
  • Prepare written responses to objections.
  • Represent you in meetings with decision makers.
  • Provide you with representation at Tribunal and mediation hearings.

Having an experienced organisation with a wealth of technical expertise supporting you can be a great help throughout the planning process. We understand the intricacies of the process and are well equipped to manage objections to the project, ensuring that your project has the greatest chance of success.
