We carefully prepare your Town Planning application so that you have the best possible chance to obtaining your permit.
Investing in property is like any other investment. There are no absolute guarantees and town planning can also be uncertain which is why you need our experienced team! Applications can meet all of the requirements of State and Local Government planning controls, yet unfortunately they may be refused a permit.
One reason this may happen could be because of the neighbourhood character. This refers to the look and feel of an area ie its personality! and includes the types of developments, the age of the developments, materials used, heights of buildings, colours, patterns, landscapes and driveways just to name a few. Everyone’s interpretation of this is different.
WE WON’T WAIT FOR THE “NO”!
We’ve mentioned that an application may be refused even if it meets State and Local Government planning controls. Despite taking all reasonable steps in preparing your application we will not obtain a true indication whether it will be supported or not until it has been lodged with Council.
If we then feel that your application will not be supported we will move quickly to arrange consultative meetings to discuss design modifications (that are still within or close to your original plan and brief) that will be more likely to gain support.
If a town planning application is refused by Council you have the option to appeal at VCAT or to abandon the project in the presented form.
For example: You may have applied for 4 double storey town houses and Council would prefer a mix of both single and double storey. Both of these options may still be within the state and local regulations but both may not have support. We will guide you as much as possible, but like any investment decision you have the choice how to proceed.
We are highly experienced in town planning and are so proud of our 95% success rate. Be confident your project is in safe hands.
