Challenges

The site was located within a heritage conservation area, leading to an increase in planning conditions and regulations that had to be navigated and satisfied.

We were able to tailor a deal structure that suited the owner’s specific circumstances

A new lease agreement was required to extend tenure, formalise access conditions, and update OH&S procedures and the survey plan. Furthermore, the new agreement had to facilitate the landowner’s complex financial and legal structure.

During construction service outages had to be minimised to avoid adversely impacting the surrounding tourist destinations
