All successful projects start with a good plan.  This is especially important when you have a property that is intended to be used for industrial, commercial or residential development.  The land planning provided by The East Group is based on over 30 years of experience in assisting with development of hundreds of properties throughout eastern North Carolina.  We have assisted with the planning of agriculture properties for industrial sites, industrial properties for recreation facilities, undeveloped wooded properties into residential subdivisions and industrial parks and expansion of existing developments.  In all situations the evaluation of existing infrastructure, needed infrastructure, environmental permitting, local and state permitting were used to make sure that the intended use worked for the property.
