Noreen O’Toole is co-founder and partner of Platinum Partners, LLC, a land use permitting and consulting company serving all of southeastern Massachusetts. The firm specializes in development, property management, planning, project management, and identification of specialists (including architects and engineers), and can assist developers throughout the entire process.  

A veteran land use planner, Noreen has a track record of positively impacting individuals and the communities in which she has served.  Prior to starting Platinum Partners, LLC, she served as Stoughton’s town planner for the last eight years, and as Hanson’s town planner for 24 years prior, as well as planner for the town of Hanover, Mass. Noreen’s role was to review plans to be certain they complied with municipal zoning regulations, advise and consult with elected community officials (Planning Board members, members of the Boards of Selectmen), and inform communities on the bigger picture of zoning regulations and their impact. 

She has a master’s degree in public administration from Northeastern University, and started her career in planning working for the Boston Redevelopment Authority.  She currently serves on the Old Colony Planning Council as the chairperson of the Joint Transportation Committee.

For Noreen, with her experience as a town planner, she sees her role with Platinum Partners as offering a solution to many entities throughout southeastern Massachusetts (including towns, planning boards, and nonprofit organizations) that struggle with town land use permitting issues and can benefit from her knowledge and background toward making the whole process more efficient and successful.
