Our Services

Expert Preparation

Our key focus is the expert preparation of resource consent applications & the acquisition of the approvals needed to move projects from the conceptual stage to a physical, benefit-generating reality in a timely & cost-effective manner.

Any size,

Any location.

At any one time, we have a diverse portfolio of projects – residential, commercial, community, industrial, rural and heritage.  These range in size and scope from adding a garage in a front yard setback to master planning exercises in Structure Plan areas.

We work in any NZ location with a primary focus on the northern half of the North Island and more specifically our local Waikato region.

Assisting organisations within the local community is important to Feathers Planning, so every year, we provide a 50% discounted rate to a charitable organisation requiring planning services.
