Navigating bureaucratic bottlenecks

Time is money, so knowing how it’s being wasted will improve your bottom line.

people walking down the stairsBusinesses have the best of intentions when embarking on new construction or expansions. After engaging engineers and architects, filing planning approvals and building permits, everyone hopes the project will proceed as planned.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. For lots of reasons, bottlenecks materialize. Someone fails to communicate. Paperwork goes missing. A policy hasn’t been followed, or someone gets sick. Maybe someone over-promised and under-delivered.

Every agency and business involved in your project has a vested interest in saving face, so people sometimes point fingers of blame in all directions. An objective perspective is important.

Open the lid on stalled projects

Business owners and managers are busy, and don’t have the time to open the lid on a stalled project. Getting things back on track is crucial for success.

A new, affordable consulting service is available to review the status of a project within the local government approval process, be it building permits, planning permission or other issues. After a brief meeting to understand project status, the consultant can get to work investigating what went wrong.

With more than 20 years of experience in local government, I know how the process works. I can identify bottlenecks and propose solutions. With a client’s authorization, I can provide representation to investigate the road blocks, provide recommendations and help find the way forward.

It’s all handled confidentially, professionally and promptly.
