"My wife, Julie Wells, and I have known and worked with Kristine Loft and her company Loft Planning several times over the past 10 years - both for personal and for business related planning projects in the Town of Collingwood and in The Town of Blue Mountains.
I am a co-founder of Side Launch Brewing Company in Collingwood and Kristine successfully assisted Side Launch navigate through some complex zoning issues with land the company had purchased on Mountain Road. Later on, Kristine also assisted us in obtaining the necessary permits to enable us to construct the brewery and to begin brewing at our ultimate location at 200 Mountain Road.
In addition, Kristine was extremely helpful in guiding us through several severances and lot line relocation projects on our extended family’s various properties on the 10th Line in the Town of The Blue Mountains. Kristine successfully steered these projects through the Town of The Blue Mountains, the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority and most important of all, through particularly complicated concerns raised the Niagara Escarpment Commission.
Throughout our time working together, Kristine’s professional, patient and diligent approach, combined with her many years of experience working with the Town of Collingwood, the Town of Blue Mountains, the NEC and the GSCA etc., provided Julie and me with the confidence that we would get to the finish line with the results we wanted and which were in fact achieved.
We are very grateful to Kristine for her guidance and pro-active approach in helping us obtain our goals with respect to our properties and highly recommend Kristine Loft and Loft Planning to anyone who is looking for planning assistance in the Georgian Triangle region for either personal or business matters." - Alex Stuart & Julie Wells
"The Osler Bluff Ski Club Ltd., property includes the Club’s four subdivisions (200 chalets) divided between two counties (Grey/Simcoe) and two municipalities (Town of The Blue Mountains and Clearview). Over the past 7 years the Osler Bluff Ski Club Ltd. has been using the services of local planner, Loft Planning. As Osler’s planning consultant, Kristine Loft has supported the Club’s endeavours with many projects to include official County and Municipal planning, municipal by-law amendments or initiatives and site plan agreements. Loft Planning’s knowledge, experience, and leadership with local municipal connections were instrumental to obtaining approvals necessary for recent large projects, that included collaboration with the two municipalities to construct a 6-acre reservoir, high pressure pumphouse with associated infrastructure for snowmaking expansion. Most recent work completed by Loft Planning was their support/expertise that enabled the required municipal approvals to permit the Club’s renovation/expansion plans of the Club’s 30,000 sq.ft. Clubhouse.
Kristine Loft and her team are very knowledgeable and have built strong relationships within local municipalities, making her our consultant of choice. For the past 7 years Loft Planning Inc. has and continues to represent Osler's planning interests to the best ability with their professional approach, attention to detail, client-based focus, and getting the required approvals as required, when required.
Lastly, Loft Planning is a smaller office, as a client you truly feel special and valued, and know that your file will see focus and action with regular updates to keep your project on track. I would highly recommend Loft Planning Inc. for any project large or small." - Jeff Conn, General Manager, Osler Bluff Ski Club Ltd.
"We are extremely fortunate to have Loft Planning navigate our building project with The Town of Blue Mountains. Kristine is brilliant at making what seems impossible, possible. We saved significant time and money following her lead in the approval process. Bravo, Kristine." - David Brown
"Informed, professional and pragmatic. Kristine (Loft Planning Inc.) took on a challenging project at our farm, for the planning and approvals for our cidery in the early days of the craft cider industry in Ontario .With little precedent in our Township at the time, and a sensitive environmental location, she guided all stakeholders efficiently and professionally through the process to achieve the desired outcome to everyone’s satisfaction.As our business continues to grow, we rely on Kristine as a trusted partner to help us plan and expand our operations rapidly and cost effectively with her strategic and sound advice." – Tim and Kimberly Schneider, Duntroon Cyder House, Nottawa, Ontario
"We engaged Kristine Loft’s planning services to assist us with our self- storage development project in Collingwood during the period mid 2012 through late 2016. When purchased, the property was appropriately zoned but the site plan agreement in place needed substantial revision. Kristine expertly guided us through the process of obtaining Town approvals to amend the original SPCA, as well as obtain two subsequent minor amendments to it, and also Committee of Adjustment approval for two setback reductions. Her diligence, advice and administrative assistance throughout the process were consistently professional, supportive and invaluable to us.
It’s worth noting that Kristine commands the respect of the Town’s Planners and other officials which, of course, was critical for the smooth and successful processing of our approval applications. Since completion of her formal engagement with us, we have occasionally sought her advice informally about other sites under consideration for potential development and similar matters. Kristine has always been most helpful and has proven to be a valuable resource for us. We clearly recommend and would engage Loft Planning again without hesitation when the need arises." - James S. Parsons, Chairman, StorPro Limited
"I would highly recommend Kristine Loft and her company Loft Planning Inc.. I have used Kristine on a few projects now and found her to be very thorough in her work, professional in all her dealings with myself and the people we have to be involved with for approvals. Her commitment to our projects timing requirements was always excellent and kept me advised of any possible delays or challenges, and then found a way to overcome them in the most efficient manner. We could have not completed what was required for approvals without her knowledge and attention to detail." - Jules Fabbri, President and GM, South Paw Canada
"Simply put, Kristine Loft is a trust professional and made our first new build (John Deere Dealership) in Simcoe County seamless, she made our project stay on target in terms of permitting planning approvals, consultations, and presentation before council etc. I am not sure how I would have gotten through the project without her." - Chris Hare, Branch Manager Huron Tractor
