Terra Consultants Central North Island provides a full land development consultancy service for both our public and private sector clients with expertise in resource management issues, technical advice and practical solutions.



Terra CNI Ltd. is located in the central North Island, Waikato. We service the Central North Island, including the Waikato and Bay of Plenty Regions. The Waikato team are led by expert planner & project manager, Richard Falconer. Terra's consultants are professionally trained to interpret resource management plans and procedures and to work with stakeholders to achieve outcomes that are satisfactory for all. Advice on these matters can ensure a sense of clarity and simplicity is brought to the complex planning process. 

In any development, the first step is often to obtain the necessary Resource Consents from Council. Early consultation with our specialist planners will ensure potential issues are identified and resolved at an early stage, and a strategy is set for the consenting process, which will save you time and money. Essentially, our specialist planners will work with you to get the best out of your land, with minimal delay in obtaining the necessary consents from Council.

Since our Waikato office founding in back in 2017, our service offering has expanded into a full-service multi-disciplinary offering. This is critical to the time frame and cost-effective assessment of resource consents. These services include planning, surveying, architecture, urban design, structural and civil engineering. 

Following the sale of our section at auction last week we wanted to provide our sincere thanks for the professional services provided by Terra Consultants. The consultancy support that you provided in increasing the unit density on our land through Council Resource Consent had a significant positive impact on the final sale price – well above our initial expectations. This was of even more value to us in what has become a slowing development market with the restrictions on bank lending.

We appreciated your consistent, open and honest communication throughout the process and always felt like we were well informed of progress and next steps. It has been fantastic to work with a team of professionals who are good at their job and do what they say they will do. These are attributes that are unfortunately a little rare these days. We even enjoyed learning more about the ins and outs of the whole process of consent through Council.

This outcome was a dream result for us and will set us in good stead with our next move and build - we certainly wouldn’t have achieved anywhere near the auction price without your help. Thanks again and we will absolutely be recommending your services to anyone that we come in contact with, and have already done so to a couple of friends looking for support with their own projects.
