Industry

JGPC has a number of different industry clients who require development approval for new or expanded industrial uses. Industry approvals often involve consideration of Environmentally Relevant Activities (ERAs) and accordingly, require a strong understanding of the Environmental Protection Act 1994, and interrelationship with the Planning Act 2016 and Planning Regulation 2017.

JGPC has extensive experience with managing the related technical disciplines that are often required to support applications for industrial uses. These include air quality, noise, traffic, stormwater management and related building requirements. JGPC consistently provides expert planning advice regarding the approval process and strategies needed to obtain successful approval outcomes for their clients.
