If you have a veterinary surgery and are either looking to expand or find the perfect location, Ultimate Planning Solutions can help.

We look into zoning regulations to make sure that zoning restrictions do not limit the number or type of animal clinics in a particular area. By taking these steps, we can help ensure that veterinary surgeries are accessible to everyone and have the space they need to grow.

Additionally, we can help to ensure that vet practices are located in areas that are easily accessible, providing pets and their owners with a convenient and safe location to access care.

With the right planning, veterinary surgery expansions can be carried out responsibly while still meeting the needs of both pet owners and businesses alike.

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

Hours of Operation

Often located within a centre activity area, the centre management will define the hours of operation. There is a growing demand for veterinary services to offer a 24-hour service. This will trigger a higher level of assessment and requirement for acoustic report and onsite management plan to ensure a reasonable level of amenity is retained for nearby sensitive land uses.

Noise and Waste Management

A veterinary facility has the potential to impact neighbouring amenity standards by impacts to noise and odour. There is often a requirement for your development application to be reviewed by Environmental health officers to ensure compliance with sanitary standards.


Carparking Requirements

Depending on the location of your property your business will be subject to off street carparking requirements for your patients. 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.
