Registered Professional Planners, or RPP’s, are skilled professionals who work within the complex legislative framework of the Planning Act and accompanying Provincial Policy Statement, Greenbelt Plan, Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan, Niagara Escarpment Plan and Regional and Municipal Official Plans to promote healthy and sustainable communities. The release of the 2017 Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe has also greatly complicated the policy environment for any development proposed outside settlement areas.
EcoVue’s professional planners have the expertise and specialized knowledge necessary to assist our clients in obtaining planning approvals for a wide range of development applications. Our clients include homeowners, developers, non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, community groups and municipalities. Each of our clients benefit from having an RPP to guide them through the process.
EcoVue’s planners are available to meet with you at our offices to discuss your project. Alternately, we can arrange to meet with you on site to discuss your development plans in greater detail. After gathering some basic information, including the specific location of the property and the type of use you are proposing, we can provide you with recommendations about how best to achieve your project goals. We can undertake a Site Selection/Due Diligence exercise or Feasibility Study to ensure that your investment in property is sound and without hidden pitfalls. Please be assured the information you provide to us will always be treated as confidential.
Based on initial discussions and the information you have provided, your project planner will generate an initial Work Plan and budget for your approval. The Work Plan may simply involve a Feasibility Study for a specific property, or it may be much more complex, involving many phases of development approvals such as those required for development of a Plan of Subdivision or Condominium.
Going forward, your Project Planner at EcoVue will continue to consult with you and other key members of the project team – as well as with municipal staff, agency representatives and the general public – to ensure the best possible outcome for your project.
