Malcolm Smith Consulting was engaged by a landowner adjoining the proposed Highfield Park development to assist with a submission to the Plan Change. The landowner wanted to have some matters raised and addressed within the Plan Change process and required assistance to fully consider these and make an appropriate submission. Malcolm provided advice on the Plan Change process and how to prepare a submission to best express the relevant matters. He then prepared the submission and forwarded it to the Local Authority.
Following the submission task, the landowner was invited, and wanted to be heard at the Hearing. Malcolm helped to prepare evidence to be presented at the Hearing. He also helped to engage an expert Resource Management Planning consultant who finalised the evidence and presented it to the Commissioners at the Hearing.
