Our expertise lies in unlocking the full potential of your specialist consultants and ensuring all stakeholders work in a cohesive and complimentary manner.

Your architect knows building design, your landscaper knows gardens and your traffic management consultant knows how to manage the roads around the project, but someone needs to compile all the information from these authorities and ensure all the pieces of the puzzle align for a great end product.

Our town planning firm has proven experience in helping our customers get through all types of projects.

What Is Town Planning?

Whether you are developing a single property into three units, several hectares into a new estate or an apartment block, you will need to consider a wide range of factors and laws.

Town planning revolves around understanding the lay of the land, what is permissible where you are building and how your development will affect the surrounding area.

This means planning everything; from traffic management to assessing the interfere with neighbouring properties and considering the complex state and local policy and strategic framework.

It can also mean the process of rezoning land to ensure your development is viable.
