Brodie Costello's profile

Brodie Costello

Planner

Originally from a sheep and beef farm in beautiful North Canterbury, it was there that Brodie discovered his interest in the land and sustainable management, making planning a fitting career for him.

Brodie started off his planning profession at the University of Canterbury, where he graduated with a Masters in International Law and Politics focusing on water and land management, followed by a Postgraduate Certificate in Planning from Massey University while working fulltime. He joined the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment specialising in telecommunications and housing policy, working with Ministers of Parliament, district and regional councils, and the wider public.

Brodie then headed overseas to Canada to travel and work, settling in the subarctic city of Yellowknife. Most recently Brodie worked for the Wek'èezhı̀i Land and Water Board, assessing and approving resource consents for land and water use, while engaging with private companies, indigenous organisations and local government.  

Brodie’s clients can expect to be rewarded by his results-driven approach, along with his strategic and practical solutions to any problem that may arise.

Having newly returned to New Zealand, outside of work Brodie enjoys spending time with his partner Kelsey rediscovering Central Otago and the wider South Island, as well as getting involved with cricket, golf and fishing.
