Sometimes, even changes to a building, that in the scheme of things appear small, will need to be approved by your local council before you can proceed.

RG Strategic lodged a town planning application for the Minor Change for the addition of a cabana structure in the existing pool area for Unit 1 at Artis Villas, Noosa Drive.

With the approval also came new stipulations from Council, including the usual stipulation that the development must be undertaken and operated in a manner that causes no detrimental effect upon the amenity of the neighbourhood by reason of the creation of excessive noise, lighting nuisance or other emissions.

In addition:

  • The rooftop terrace cabana roof structure must remain unenclosed; and
  • The rooftop terrace cabana roof structure must not exceed a maximum of 2.5 m in height above the existing FFL of the rooftop terrace and not exceed 38 m² of the rooftop area.

Russell and team worked tirelessly to help get our business up and running. With all facets of licensing and council approvals their expertise and tenacity are invaluable. We couldn’t have set up without them. I would strongly recommend for any new project. Russell had our liquor license, food license, and plumbing approval organised extremely fast and smooth. Any obstacles that arose were navigated quickly and gave me confidence and peace of mind to move forward.

When we made the decision to re-launch the Noosa Enduro, Russell and his team at RG Strategic was the first phone call we made. Russell's immense knowledge of the local council landscape and processes were vital to our event to ensure correct planning, applications and permits were in place. The professionalism shown throughout all of our high level dealings and documents elevated our event and helped provide confidence to all key stakeholders. I'm thrilled we made the decision to engage Russell and the team at RG Strategic and I will remain a client for many years to come.
