Dean is particularly successful at guiding complex and/or non-complying projects through the consent process, some very large. This often results in big savings for his clients, most commonly in reduced parking requirements and/or reduced width requirements for roads or access.

Dean's ability to identify and focus in on key issues and the real effects of proposals regularly provides significant savings for his clients - usually many more times than the amount of his fee.

Dean has extensive experience in the capacity and traffic safety assessment and design of entrances onto public roads, internal access, parking areas, vehicle manoeuvring areas and the wider effects of generated traffic or parking demand on the existing road network including realistic predictions of future traffic.

He uses specialist computer-based software for 3-dimensional terrain modelling, road design and vehicle tracking when necessary to provide you with the most cost-effective, efficient and practical access solutions.
