9 Reasons Why Perception Planning?
We get the job done
With over 15 years experience in town planning in both the public and private sector, we know how the system works and can use that intimate knowledge to get the best results for you. We have a proven track record of getting results for our clients.
If you’re looking at buying a property or carrying out development anywhere from Sydney to Tamworth, Dungog to Singleton, then you need to talk to us. We will make sure you are looked after and there are no surprises.
Perception Planning will tell you up front what the chances of success with your project area and what any possible challenges may be. We will be clear and direct with you about your development project – that’s our promise to you. When your best informed we can make the best decisions.
In this digital age, we don’t have a expensive shop front – rather co-locate with other professional services. This means we can deliver a service to you with low overheads with the client benefiting.
We work for government, not for profits, professional developers and mum and dad developers. At inception we personalise and tailor our approach to meet the individual client planning needs – no mass production, every job is bespoke.
Level of service
We don’t win the job then palm you off to a junior/inexperienced staff member so we can maximise profit. You will be mainly dealing with director or senior level staff who have a personal and financial commitment to the business and mostly importantly the customer.
We are on the journey with you – we ride the highs and the lows. We understand the development industry can be tricky and what is on the line.
We have a guaranteed response time of 1 business day when you email us. We realise how important staying in touch is. We are available to talk to you literally 24/7.
Unlike some bigger companies that don’t encourage the client being hands on, we do – we think there is no greater way to get a team approach and manage costs. We can do as little or as much of the process as you like.
Unlike some other firms that need to make ends meet, our motivation is not solely financial. We have a massive sense of community/place, something that Matt’s rural upbringing instilled in him. We only do what we think is right for the customer but importantly, what’s also right in an environmental and social sense.
