Food & Drink Outlets


Are you looking to develop your property into a food and drink outlet? Let Ultimate Planning Solutions help you with the details so that you can maximise the value of your property by achieving your vision.

How our team will help you with your project is to make sure that the necessary permits and infrastructure is in place. We make sure that the zoning for your property is appropriate, and help to create a development plan for your site. Our role is to also coordinate with local government to ensure that there are no regulations or laws that could affect the development of your property. Finally, we work with you and other professionals to create a design for your cafe or restaurant that is safe, attractive and functional. By working closely with Ultimate Planning Solutions, you can be sure that your food and drink outlet will be attractive and safe for customers, while also meeting all of the necessary requirements.

Our job is to help improve your property and put you on the right track to develop a successful dining outlet. Along with our years of experience and working closely with Council, we can ensure that requirements like increased traffic and car parking needs, visual amenity and signage, and considerations of hours of operation are not missed when submitting for approval. Ultimate Planning Solutions services are not just to create places for people to eat and drink, but also to make sure that those places are safe and accessible.

What are the Council Requirements relevant to my Application? 
Although each application will be different, common Council requirements to consider when applying for a Food & Drink Outlet includes: 

Defining your Development

Different Councils have varying definitions of business operations. Is there a difference between a cafe, kiosk or a restaurant under your Council's planning scheme? Will you need a different approval if you also want to use your space as a shop? Ultimate Planning Solutions have experience in making applications under different Council planning schemes and will help you to define the land use of your business.

Carparking Requirements

Depending on the location of your property your business will be subject to off street carparking requirements for your patrons. Do you know how to calculate the parking requirements for your property based upon the location, use and size of your business? Be sure you are meeting all Council requirements and allow Ultimate Planning Solutions to take the guesswork out of your development application.
