I have known Ben Carter, Director of Pinnacle Planning, professionally for some 6 years. His respectful yet professional assertive approach ensures that all parties have a thorough understanding of the planning issues and promotes effective, fair, logical and successful “win-win” solutions and outcomes.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone seeking professional and competent advice in relation to the complexities of the planning process.
Our Company has been using Pinnacle Planning since its inception. Our work is challenging and complex, and Pinnacle Planning has played a vital role in the growth of our company. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
Tembo Property Group engaged Pinnacle Planning to complete a number of tasks for a new Service Station/ Carwash development in Beeliar Drive, Cockburn. Ben Carter from Pinnacle handled the assignment and was extremely helpful and diligent in completing all tasks within budget and the time frames set. The principle assignment was to run a case through SAT for an item on a Development Application that the client believed was onerous. Ben handled the submission, mediation and negotiated a successful outcome for the Client. Tembo Property Group has no hesitation in recommending Pinnacle, and Ben, and we look forward to working with them in the near future.
Ben of Pinnacle Planning worked for us on a recent project for a large national company. His knowledge of procedures and general aptitude were exceptional. This enabled us to push through with the works with the minimum of fuss and concern for both ourselves and our Client. I highly recommend the services of Pinnacle Planning and we shall gladly use them again when the situation arises.
Giorgi Exclusive Homes have engaged Pinnacle Planning on several of our up market homes to receive a Development approval through local Government. We have always found there services to be of a professional manner with the intention to resolve any issues promptly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Pinnacle Planning for these professional services.
We have used Pinnacle Planning on a range of sites now that presented challenges from a Town Planning perspective. Given we are first and foremost Custom Home Builders, we tend to focus on our core business activities. We have utilised Pinnacle Planning to assist with getting through Planning Applications, dealing with refusals through successful management of Applications for Review through the SAT, and also for advice prior to lodgement of an Application.
We are increasingly aware of the benefit a Planning Consultant can provide for our projects, and will look to use Pinnacle Planning in the future on our projects, from design inception through to successfully obtaining Planning Approval.
I’ve had Pinnacle Planning assist with several complex town planning applications. I found their knowledge with planning legislation, planning schemes and local policies extensive and very useful.
On several occasions, Ben’s approach has resulted in avoiding expensive conditions and changes being imposed by the WAPC and the local government. My advice would be to get Pinnacle Planning involved in the early design stage. By doing so, you’re not wasting time and money on plans that may get shut down at a later stage.
I would highly recommend Pinnacle Planning.
We recently appointed Pinnacle Planning to manage the planning process including the Application and post lodgement tasks for an Apartment Project in Maylands. The project had a sense of urgency, due to the change in the R-Codes expected to come in at any time.
We appreciated the advice on lodgement strategy at the start of the process, which ended up having the Application go before the Development Assessment Panels in a set timeframe. The input on both design and technical planning elements meant that the Application was ultimately approved with little change to the initial design, and by going through the DAPs, we avoided a lengthy Council and SAT process, and ensured the approval was secured before the R-Code change.
We enjoyed working with Pinnacle Planning and look forward to tackling challenging planning matters with their assistance in the future.
I have worked with Pinnacle Planning now on a number of successful projects and am always impressed with their exceptional levels of service, professionalism and quality of work.
They are willing to go above and beyond to ensure clients’ expectations are met or exceeded and I would happily recommend Pinnacle Planning to anyone who is after a personalised, efficient and cost effective urban planner.
We spent two frustrating months in a council that was feeding requirements one at a time and had no defined process. We dealt with no less than 7 different representatives and had made no progress. Ben was recommended and two weeks later we had building and planning approval.
