ECPP was founded by Gavin Ng where during his time working in Councils as a planner and compliance building surveyor he noticed there were many issues property owners, business owners and tenants faced regarding planning restrictions and compliance issues. These issues were often attributed to lack of due diligence or lack of knowledge of the requirements and regulations surrounding use, building works and council compliance.

Gavin is passionate about property and has an extensive network of property investors, developers, legal practitioners and property professionals. As such, Gavin realised that his unique mix of experience and education in planning, building compliance and property development could make a meaningful contribution to the property industry by providing a service that was different to the traditional planning consultancies.

Gavin’s aim was to create a consultancy that focused not just on helping clients obtain development approvals but on making planning and compliance consulting accessible and tailored for property professionals, investors, business owners and developers. The main focus of his vision is to create a consultancy that specialised in commercial use developments and effective planning/compliance due diligence to be ultilised pre-acquisition.

Gavin has over 10 years’ experience with Local Government in strategic planning, development assessment, and compliance building surveying. He is experienced in heritage item/conservation area developments, high rise residential, large lot subdivisions, industrial, commercial and extractive resource DA’s. He has handled many high-profile compliances matters, building certificates and acted as expert witness in Land and Environment Court appeals and prosecutions.

He specialises in planning/compliance due diligence, resolving complex compliance matters with Council, commercial use developments with private educational establishments/office/retail/public entertainment/food and drink premises/licensed premises/late night trading/events, and heritage item and conservation area developments and other complex residential developments.

Gavin is the founder and managing director of PlanningReports and ComplianceReports , Australia’s premier planning/compliance due diligence tool assisting property buyers, business buyers, property developers and property professionals.

His unique combination of qualifications and experience will allow him to assist you with your next property acquisition, renovation/fitout, Development Application, Building Certificate, business set up, property development project, or resolving compliance issues with Council.
