Town Planning

Our planners are committed to understanding your project objectives and collaborating with the project team to achieve a better outcome for your project.

With a proven track record of obtaining rezoning and development approvals, we are highly experienced in negotiating complex development applications, preparing strategic plans, and working collaboratively alongside project teams to ensure your objectives are achieved. We have experience providing our statutory and strategic planning services on a wide array of projects, from education infrastructure upgrades to healthcare and seniors living and residential developments. We can also advise you on project feasibility, whether the intention is to purchase, develop, subdivide, or rezone.

Our planners have a comprehensive understanding of local government and government agency’s planning regulations and requirements which allows us to apply a localised approach towards your project. Within the public sector, our planners have extensive experience working closely with government agencies to prepare Review of Environmental Factors, development applications, and assist with development assessments to help create better outcomes for the community.
