Our Directory is an extremely affordable way for companies to promote themselves and their services directly to clients looking for planners.

Te Kōkiringa Taumata | New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI) promotes the benefits of using the services of Planning Consultants to businesses, developers, members of the public and community groups. We highlight the importance of involving a Planning Consultant early in the process, advocating that it increases the effectiveness, independence and professional accountability of the resource consent process, and often results in a more cost-effective outcome.

We recommend that before anyone starts planning an activity that might affect their neighbours, wider community or environment, they contact their Local Council who can verify if a resource consent is needed. If it’s determined that an activity requires consent, NZPI advocates that a Planning Consultant be engaged to help prepare the application. We also recognise that people may be on the other side of the process and have concerns about a proposed activity or plan change being put forward. In this scenario we would recommend the services of planner who can assist them in making a formal submission on an application or a plan change.

To compliment the online directory, we distribute a promotional leaflet throughout New Zealand to Citizens Advice Bureaus, Councils, Community Law Centres, Environment Information Centres and Professionals in related industries. The leaflet reinforces the value of seeking the advice of a planning professional who is more likely to address important planning issues and achieve outcomes.
