So far in 2022, my experience is that project leaders are under more intense pressure to have better INFORMATION about their land and projects. Are you feeling this too?
There is a new level of energy and diligence from project leaders, Boards, investment committees, and capital committees, as we all start to anticipate the end of the pandemic.
Decision-makers are asking a lot more QUESTIONS and looking for greater accountability in 2022.
Channel helps project leaders as well as investment committees, capital committees, and Boards to be ACCOUNTABLE.
Do you know the TRUTH about approvals risks and your business plan right now?
Every acquisition, disposition and business plan change for land development in the Lower Mainland needs a land use study.
Channel’s independent opinion includes:
– Overview of existing conditions and land development potential
– Summary of applicable land use regulations (all levels of government)
– Assessment of risk, costs, and timelines of the approvals process
– Information verified in conversation with government staff
– Recommended next steps to prepare project for approval
– Beautiful, 15-page report
We call this our land use report.
While having quality information allows CONFIDENCE in decision-making, having poor information on costs and risks of government approvals can kill project viability. This risk is very stressful for our clients.
Every month that a project is under review with government, the viability of the project is threatened by rising construction costs.
Government staff consistently tell us that they appreciate it when applicants work with Channel on a land use study because the applicant is well-prepared. This makes the approvals process more efficient.
Testimonials on channelconsulting.ca from private businesses, government, and non-profit organizations will give you a sense of the efficiency and VALUE of a land use report.
The next municipal election is on October 15, 2022. After June 2022, most development decisions will wait until 2023. Channel can provide a professional opinion during this time of uncertainty.
If you, your colleagues, or your clients would benefit from Channel’s help to better understand what you can do with your land, please book a consultation appointment.
To get started, we ask that clients please take five minutes to complete the new client questionnaire. This information helps us identify the most effective way to answer questions about your property.
