Planners + Technology = Better Project Outcomes

It’s no secret that the planning process often leads to significant delays, uncertainty, and increased costs for projects.

The Rico Planner Registry consists of planners proactively using technology to save time and costs while delivering better outcomes for their clients. They achieve this by:

  • Eliminating approximately 30% of the unnecessary administrative work involved in application preparation, reducing both time and costs.

  • Streamlining processing through Council by using a systematic approach to ensure that all required information is included upfront. (Did you know, Council can 'stop the clock', putting your application on hold, when they need more information.)

  • Minimising Council processing fees by making applications clearer and easier to assess. (Did you know, Council charges applicants $170-$210 an hour to process their applications?)

"I appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to review and provide input on your platform. We are supportive of industry-led innovation in making it easier for people to make quality applications, which enable local authorities to process effectively and efficiently, including minimising the need for further information requests."

-Ian Smallburn, General Manager Resource Consents, Auckland Council
