Bennett + Bennett are pleased to announce that they have purchased long standing Byron Shire survey practice Canty’s Surveyors, as we expand into the Northern Rivers region.

Why expand into the Northern Rivers region?

Northern NSW has always been on the doorstep of Bennett + Bennett’s Gold Coast Office and it was a natural growth option for the Company to expand across the border. Bennett + Bennett have conducted many surveys in NSW and are aware of and familiar with the Survey standards of NSW, in particular the titling requirements for cadastral surveys, which are different to Qld.

Former Owner/director of Canty’s Surveyors, Mr Scott Thompson, has joined the Bennett + Bennett team and Scott will take on the role of Regional Manager in this Northern Rivers office.

Bennett + Bennett Managing Director Mark Billsborough was keen to express ‘We have known Scott and his business for quite a while, and we have worked together on some very successful projects in the past. Scott is a highly skilled Cadastral surveyor, who is very respected in the industry and the time was right for us to have a stronger presence in the Northern Rivers region.

We are very excited to bring someone with Scott’s ability and connections into Bennett + Bennett.’

Mark added ‘There is a lot to like about the potential growth in the ‘Northern Rivers’ region. The area will be more and more accessible to SE Qld and to Sydney (post covid) with the motorway upgrades north and south and the great lifestyle afforded to the region.’

Who are Canty’s Surveyors?

Canty’s Surveyors have been around since 1960, originally owned by Bob Canty, and provide a range of survey services. Scott took over the business in the year 2000, is a registered surveyor with 35 years of years’ experience in the industry and is a member of the Institution of Surveyors NSW and a member of the Board of Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute.

Scott was equally pleased to have the support of Bennett + Bennett and looks forward to working with us – ‘I have also known Bennett + Bennett for many years with some ex-University friends who work there, and they are a well-run client-based survey company with a range of skills and technology through drones and large software to further compliment my Strata Surveys, Subdivisions and Building works in the area.’

Bennett + Bennett Senior Surveyor, Marcus Hager, is relocating to this office to assist with the growing workloads. Marcus is a local boy also – having grown up in the region and attending Mullumbimby High School – so he is excited to be involved and working full-time in the Northern Rivers and is a very capable young surveyor with 12 years’ experience and plenty of upside.
