Engaging with planning and permitting officials and communicating with project stakeholders early and often is an important (yet often overlooked) part of implementing a successful permitting process.
With extensive experience acquired from decades of environmental consulting and engineering design work, the talented team at Ransom are experts at communicating and working with permitting departments, advisory boards and many local, state and federal agencies.
Ransom also manages other key stakeholder expectations by proactively involving local residents, business owners and organizations that may be effected by the project.
While many clients understand that receiving municipal planning approval is a necessity for any development project to begin, another important element to consider is the role of environmental permitting.
Based on the project’s site location, structure type and proposed use of the property, additional permitting may also be required in order for the project to move forward. These include addressing issues relating to stormwater, soil, wastewater removal and the potential effects of blasting during construction or demolition.
Whenever possible, Ransom consultants begin each project by first coordinating and facilitating a conceptual planning meeting with the municipal economic development officials, town planners and town managers.
These meetings allow town officials to review preliminary project plans and discuss any major areas of concern very early in the process – saving time, money and frustration down the line. This also provides an opportunity for stakeholders to learn about any additional permits that may be required and the deadlines associated with each one.
Following decades of dedicated service and by consistently fostering an environment of open communication, mutual respect and trust, Ransom Consulting has earned a solid reputation as a knowledgeable, hardworking, trustworthy client advocate throughout the entire permitting process.
