Repurposed   Buildings

When you re-purpose a building for a new activity it changes the effects that were expected from it which needs to be addressed as a part of the resource consent process. Urbis can help you consider:

  • The environmental impacts

  • Amenity and character effects

  • The historical land use and how that could impact the new activity

  • Traffic and parking changes
