Bart Carswell RPP, MCIP

My name is Bart Carswell.  I am the owner and director of Carswell Planning Incorporated.  We are an urban planning company.  One of the services we provide is a Planning Brief which is an investigation into the municipal policy documents that apply to a property undergoing development.  This is provided to the land owner after correspondence and verification with municipal administration as to the feasibility of the development and the planning process to follow.

I’ve been a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners since 1997 and recognized as a Registered Professional Planner.  As an RPP, we are held to a high standard for ethical and professional competency.  Carswell Planning engages and collaborates in the planning process, the politics and the technical aspects of land development towards your success.
