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 & Co, so every year, we provide a 50% discounted rate to a charitable organisation requiring planning services.
