Planning and Development

Benbow Environmental work with public and private clients, government and the community in the planning, design, development and management of projects from large scale building developments to heavy industry, manufacturing and farming operations.  Environmental planning is a growing element of the development process and continues to grow in importance as community expectations of sustainable development increase and statutory controls become more stringent. 

Planning and development is regulated by state, regional and local plans and policies.  Our qualified consultants are highly experienced in the preparation of detailed Environmental Impact Statements for complex developments, and can also provide specialist advice in preparing the necessary documentation and environmental studies for development applications as well as undertake consultation with regulatory authorities and other stakeholders.

With over 20 years’ experience in this area, we assess the environmental impacts of industrial developments.  Our services extend beyond the design and development phases to management and monitoring of the proposed processes including the preparation of Environmental management systems and plans, Pollution incident response management plans (PIRMPs) as well as specific site environmental procedures.
