“I have worked with Don Scott and his staff at Cuesta on a number of files and I have always found their knowledge, experience and expertise to be a great asset on any project. Don is highly regarded, knows everybody, and is a great witness.”-David S. White, Q.C.
“We had the opportunity to use Cuesta Planning Services in an appeal of a decision by the Committee of Adjustment of the Municipality of Meaford to the OMB. The original decision had denied a severance application we had made. With the able assistance of Cuesta, we were able to convince the OMB that the original decision by the Municipality of Meaford was flawed, and we were granted the severance. It was much less stressful having Cuesta fight the flawed decision for us than trying to proceed without professional guidance. We are grateful for their help.”-Colin McIver
“Don Scott and his staff guided me through an extensive and complex land use planning application approvals process when I chose to add a green energy project to my traditional farming operation. The project included applications under both the Planning Act and the Environmental Assessment Act, was met by much public opposition and finally resulted in an Ontario Municipal Board hearing. Throughout the process, staff at Cuesta was on our side. They were professional, practical and thorough, recognizing and responding to our needs and concerns during a stressful time. Cuesta’s expert testimony at the Board was indisputable and we were finally successful in achieving our goals. I would highly recommend Cuesta Planning Consultants Inc. for your land use planning needs.”-Kevin Cruickshank
“Over the past decade I have had the opportunity to participate in several appeals before the Ontario Municipal Board where Don has been qualified to present expert land use planning evidence. Regardless of whether Don has been acting for my clients or those adverse in interest, he has always been a consummate professional and thorough gentlemen. I have no hesitation in recommending Don and Cuesta Planning for any planning assignment in the Counties of Grey, Bruce or Simcoe. Clients of Don/Cuesta (and their counsel) can be assured that their applications will be handled with skill and integrity.” -Erroll Treslan
“When looking at a difficult planning application for a large quarry proposal, MAQ Aggregates turned to Don Scott and Cuesta Planning Consultants. Don’s attention to detail in his reports, his knowledge of the local by-laws and his ability to deal with the public on a level of understanding between them and our company was first rate and we believe today that our application process was at the highest level thanks to Don and his team. We look forward to working with Don Scott and Cuesta Planning Consultants on future projects.”
