mb+ third party certification

The mbplus initiative offers an expedited application service for low risk development applications such as plan endorsement and operational work permits.

Suitably qualified consultants and consultancies have been certified by Council to release endorsed survey plans and development permits for operational works within five business days.

Benefits of being accredited

As an mbplus accredited consultant, you can offer clients a quicker and more efficient option for low-risk development proposals. On successful accreditation, Council will provide the mbplus accredited consultant logo for you to use in promoting your business.

Terms of use: Placement of the Council mb+ graphic suite on publications, signage and online, indicates support, endorsement or involvement from Council. It is only to be used as support graphics in conjunction with those of accredited consultants.
