There is inherent uncertainty in lodging any application. Even so, we rarely receive a refusal. We take our clients and their projects through a process that provides increasing certainty as we progress. We are familiar with the issues and can give a client a very good indication of an application's outcome before lodging it. InsiteSJC does not like surprises like refusals or unreasonable conditions either and that is why we 'do our homework' early. There will always be some uncertainty for applications...otherwise, there would be no need for them and the Council would have made your project 'accepted development'. Sometimes the unanticipated, and unreasonable, happens despite thorough investigations before lodging an application. We can help a client through a process of seeking a negotiated decision notice or lodging an appeal, if necessary.
