We provide Town Planning services for property and infrastructure projects in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Shepparton  and Albury / Wodonga. Our team offers a full range of specialist urban and regional town planning services including due diligence, strategic and statutory planning, project facilitation, stakeholder engagement and advocacy.

We believe we are different because we are focussed on providing exceptional project outcomes, we are part of a truly integrated property and infrastructure consultancy and we are strongly connected with the industry.

Our team are dedicated to delivering successful outcomes for our clients and add strategic value to all the projects we take on. We do this by identifying vital insights, planning risks and opportunities, which highlight the easiest and most effective ways for our clients to gain approvals and succeed in a timely manner. All of our work is underpinned by a comprehensive understanding of the planning policy framework and the property development sectors.

Our planners are part of an integrated multi-disciplinary team. This integration with other disciplines, together with our deep knowledge of planning, allows us to advise at any stage of a project’s lifecycle. This wider appreciation also ensures we can take the lead consultant role during the preliminary phases and facilitate the other services to ensure the best possible project outcomes. We can assist our clients from site selection and feasibility through to the necessary approvals and condition compliance.

We are connected with the industry and are active members of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), Property Council of Australia (PCA), Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association (VPELA) and Planning Institute of Australia (PIA). In addition, our team have long-standing relationships with local Councils and State Government planning authorities. These connections are integral to delivering forward thinking outcomes for our clients.

Our team provide the following specialist Town Planning services:

Due Diligence

Our experienced team of Town Planners are able to provide expert due diligence advice, site identification and evaluation to support acquisitions and development concepts. 

Whilst the nature and extent of due diligence is tailored to suit each project, our process seeks to ‘hit the mark’ by identifying key issues and understanding client priorities. This ensures that our clients are well informed to make appropriate decisions in the early phases of the project life-cycle. 

Statutory Planning

Our team regularly secure planning approvals and supporting documentation for our clients across property and infrastructure projects.

We are often involved in the entire project life-cycle from initial discussions with government agencies to complying with planning permit conditions.

Our recent experience includes residential, industrial, and retail projects along renewable energy and health projects.

Strategic Planning

We regularly facilitate the process to amend or set the long-term direction within planning controls. 

Our team are often involved in the preparation and review of applications to amend relevant planning scheme controls, including structure plans and infrastructure contribution plans. We are engaged by both private clients, to represent their interests in the planning scheme amendment process, and by local Councils to manage the process on behalf of the Council. 

Our extensive experience allows us to deliver strategic planning outcomes for residential, industrial, retail and infrastructure projects.

Project Facilitation

Our team are experts at leading consultant teams throughout the planning approvals process to ensure our client’s project objectives are realised in the most efficient manner.

Stakeholder Engagement

We support our clients through the community and stakeholder consultation process.  We frequently liaise with local communities, technical experts, local Councils, service authorities and State & Federal Government.

Our approach provides effective engagement to deliver successful projects for our clients and the community.

VCAT and Planning Panel Advocacy

Our Town Planners advocate on behalf of private and government clients throughout Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) and Planning Panel processes.
