It’s an area of specialised advice that involves a clear process, experience and a nose for knowing where to look and what to do when circumstances are out of the ordinary. One thing is for sure, seeking approvals for maritime structures (pontoons, jetties, ramps, revetment walls and marinas) is fraught with complexity.
Based upon a well-articulated application process, our fee for service represents genuine value that addresses the false economy of DIY applications.
DIY maritime structure applications, particularly for one-off applications, involve a significant time commitment for learning the process that can potentially result in lengthy time delays and additional costs to resubmit information.
There are a lot of variables and a significant number of stakeholders who must all be consulted before the maritime structure receives its blessing for construction.
Our resident Licensing and Permits Officer has 16 years’ experience coordinating maritime structure applications. This fact alone adds up to vast knowledge (continually updated as laws change), that underpins a step by step process that works through every requirement, and sometimes quirks, of every level of jurisdiction required to approve an application.
These are many steps to the process:
- Establishing ownership to the highwater mark
- Considering the ‘Referral Triggers’,
- Submitting the application with suitably detailed plans
- Identifying the correct application type and Assessment Manager
This process is supported by open and efficient communication with local councils and State government representatives. It’s their job to consider all applications to determine how they and those in adjacent jurisdictions, may be impacted by the structure.
We offer a fully coordinated and highly disciplined maritime structure application service. We follow guidelines, provide expert advice, and provide the right information to the right people in the right format.
It’s methodical and involves organisation skills and a keen eye for detail to bring all the elements together in a clear and concise application. This makes it easy for administrators to check and move the application forward to the next step and then to approval.
We introduced the maritime structures application service in response to growing needs of our clients, private property owners, and construction and development industry companies who work in waterfront environments.
At Project Urban we offer an integrated whole-of-project service that enables seamless delivery of applications and approvals in a timely and cost effective manner.
