Our company aims to ensure that our clients have a clear understanding of the potential costs associated with submitting their development applications to Council prior to investing unnecessary time and money.


In order to achieve this, we aim to identify all of the likely external consultants that may be required for Council to complete their assessment of the application during our PSA and PPA stages and order quotes accordingly. This enables us to provide our clients with a fee proposal package which includes -

Town Planning Fee Proposals

We offer our clients FIXED PRICE, competitive rates which include the following scope of works -

  • Completing all DA Forms

  • Completing all Local Council Forms

  • Preparing a Town Planning Assessment Report or Statement of Environmental Effects, which details how the proposed development demonstrates compliance with the State and Local Planning Instruments

  • Assessing the proposal against the Assessment Benchmarks to identify any proposed 'variations' to the Acceptable Outcomes and demonstrate compliance with the Performance Outcomes / Overall Outcomes (QLD) or the Planning and Design Principles / Objectives (NSW)

  • Liaising with all required consultants prior to lodgement and throughout the approval process, including responding to any Information Requests
