Safeguarding Farming Futures

This project solved a family’s estate planning needs by realising some of the equity in the family farm, while retaining the bulk of the farmland as a working farm.

The Challenge

The client wanted to create a large piece of land complete with existing homestead that would be sold to settle the estate with family members, while he retained the rest of the land as a working farm.

Our Expertise

Services provided included rural land and farm surveys, property investigation, resource planning, land-use and planning consents.

The Solution

Our approach was a tailored solution that charted a pathway through the planning process and red tape. By looking at the balance of the land as a whole, we undertook an extensive rural land survey to create a large marketable piece of land that met all planning rules yet retained the bulk of the farmland so the farm could continue as a viable working operation.

The Result

By helping this farming family unlock the potential of their farmland; we’ve safeguarded the farm for future generations, and resolved their estate planning issues.
