Why I need a town planner
A town planner has thorough knowledge of the legal requirements and local planning controls necessary to prepare development applications. At Neustein Urban we simplify this complex process for you, liaising with the authorities, other professionals and interested parties. We take care of your development application all the way from preparing your application through to the day you receive your building certificate.
In Australia town planning, also known as urban planning, is generally controlled by local councils operating within laws and guidelines set up by state governments.
Town planning consultants advise and assist:
- People or companies who want to carry out a development, such as alterations to a house, a subdivision, a new apartment complex or a factory. A development can also include changing the business use, such as from a shop to a restaurant.
- Property owners regarding a property they own or are considering buying, and who want to know what can and cannot be done on that property under the planning controls.
- Anyone who may be affected by someone else's development application and who wants to protect their own interests.
- Councils or other agencies requiring assistance with the assessment of development applications or with the formulation of urban planning strategies and controls.
