PROBLEMS YOU ARE FACING
Dealing with lodgement on the NSW Planning Portal is often stressful and frustrating. Systems may be slow or unclear at times, and if you don’t know what to expect at each stage, you might have to spend days gathering additional information to complete the process.
Stress has a far-reaching impact on the individual or businesses. It slows everything down, reduces your creativity, limits flexibility, and compounds all the stress from other issues you’re handling.
LET SOMEONE ELSE HANDLE IT
There’s no need to do everything yourself. While there’s nothing wrong with being hands-on for projects, especially in the construction industry, you don’t have to go through the stress of dealing with regulatory portals when you can let experts do it for you.
KNOWING THE REQUIREMENTS
Many individuals & businesses also have trouble keeping up with new and changing requirements for documentation. This is something else to remember on top of managing your project, obtaining the relevant certificates & documents, ensuring you have enough cash flow and all of the other issues that come with the development project.
There’s a point where it’s impractical to keep splitting your attention. More importantly, you might focus too much on what you remember of regulatory requirements, even if those have changed.
LET SOMEONE ELSE MONITOR THE REQUIREMENT
At Portal Solutions, we stay up-to-date with the latest guidelines and expectations for using the NSW Planning Portal. We specialise in this, so we always know what the current requirements are and can help you avoid getting involved in a costly mix-up.
USING THE PORTAL TAKES TIME
Not only does the portal itself take time, but there’s also a time factor in learning the regulations, processing paperwork, and otherwise handling the documentation for the project. That’s time you aren’t spending on other parts of the project that require your attention.
The unavoidable reality of a development project is that you only have so much time to spend on it, outside of the other important things in your day.
LET SOMEONE ELSE SPEND THE TIME
Portal Solutions can spend time on a project, so you don’t have to. That allows you more leeway to turn your attention to other matters thet require your focus.
We work directly with clients to minimize the amount of time and effort spent on using the Planning Portal. There are some things you should always do yourself, but using the Planning Portal isn’t one of them.
(FOR BUSINESSES) HIRING ADDITIONAL STAFF IS EXPENSIVE
It might make sense for a large company handling multiple projects to hire staff exclusively for dealing with paperwork and regulatory issues, but it doesn’t make sense for small or midsize companies. Hiring a full-time employee is obviously too expensive, while even part-time help may not work because of the varying hours needed.
Hiring an employee to deal with the planning portal does not make financial sense for most companies.
CUT COSTS BY OUTSOURCING THIS
Portal Solutions knows how to get the paperwork done fast and correctly. That’s one of the main reasons we’re able to keep costs low enough to save both you and your client’s money. We don’t just lower expenses. We can actually improve your profits by offering timely help and expertise.
LENGTHY DELAYS CAUSED BY INCORRECT LODGEMENT
Finally, we often see long delays after filing paperwork incorrectly. Time is money in construction, and even a single day’s delay can cause a major impact on the completeion of the project —unfortunately, more than a third of all projects lodged in NSW experience avoidable delays. The industry clearly has a problem using the Planning Portal.
LET EXPERTS DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
The best way to avoid delays is to let experts manage the process and ensure everything is correct before you submit the paperwork. This is ultimately faster, cheaper, and better for an individual or business than handling it alone.
