Transport Depots


Ultimate Planning Solutions is committed to helping our industry clients meet their business potential through effective land use planning. We can help property owners maximise the potential of their properties by incorporating their residential needs with their business requirements. Where properties are large enough to store vehicles and machinery for the owner's personal business, we can support our clients' transport storage requirements.

Our team will consider the surrounding environment, and design the depot in a way that is sympathetic to its surroundings. This can help to ensure that the depot does not cause unnecessary disruption or environmental damage. Additionally, we take into consideration any possible health and safety risks associated with running a transport depot and devise appropriate measures to mitigate those risks. 

Your plan to improve your property and develop a successful business is achievable with the experience of Ultimate Planning Solutions navigating through Council requirements including increased traffic and carparking needs, visual amenity, potential noise generation, and considerations of hours of operation. 

Our goal at Ultimate Planning Solutions is to ensure that everything specific to your property is addressed appropriately so that your Transport depot aspirations can be approved by Council.

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

Carparking Requirements

Depending on the location of your property your business will be subject to off street car parking requirements for your staff. 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.

Visual Amenity

As Transport depots are usually large with multiple vehicles that are sometimes visually seen from the street, Council will require all details of the outward appearance of structures to be concealed from the street to ensure the streetscape character is not significantly impacted. Make sure that you have included all the details required by Council by having your development application prepared by Ultimate Planning Solutions.

What is the Process? 

Our 6-step method streamlines the process for your project application. Each step is designed to ensure that your approval is achieved quickly and efficiently.

Kevin is a good man. He is very professional for what he does and he gave me good advice for my project. It wasn’t easy for me to explain the area (planning and council approval etc) which wasn’t familiar to me, especially as English is my second language. However he understood my situation and explained what I should do and what he can do. I really do recommend his service. - M C
