WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR SERVICES...
"I have had the pleasure of working closely with Melanie on a few challenging projects I undertook in Hikurangi and Kiripaka over the past few years. From initial concept plans through to completion, Melanie has been a fabulous person to work with. Her communications skills are exemplary and at no time did she become frustrated or inundated with the mountain of paperwork required, she calmly and methodically faced each challenge until we reached our goal. I have no hesitation in recommending her services in writing or verbally and can only wish her continued success in the future".
JANE WHETTON / PRIVATE LEASING AND DEVELOPMENT / CRITICAL PATH LTD
“Our subdivision planning application was stalled and a complete mess until Melanie sorted it all out. She was efficient and effective and got it all up and running again. Very warmly recommended".
"Melanie recently prepared an application for resource consent for a bach within the coastal area to be rebuilt.
From first email, she was clear, concise and communicated well. Her report was completed in only a few weeks, and was so thorough that Council was able to approve the project without further requests for information. The whole process, from first contact to Council approval taking just 8 weeks. I was impressed by her efficiency, depth of knowledge and quality of work".
