We are often approached by developers seeking to initiate a development proposal, but the policy context may not support it. Ideas don’t always neatly coincide with the 6-year Development Plan cycle and so you might be left in a position where a plan has been recently adopted and there are limited options to influence change.
McCutcheon Halley can identify and engage on your behalf with the relevant bodies that are responsible for changing policy. Drawing on the expertise of our team, we can advise you of the avenues available and prepare a strategy to promote your idea.
The outcome of this may be that a Variation to the Development Plan is required and we have the necessary expertise to guide you through this process and engage with Elected Members as necessary.
An alternative outcome is that we identify emerging policy changes that would support your proposal and can then lobby on your behalf in preparing a robust submission that promotes your interests.
