Town Planning

Town planning is complex and each plan or development application is unique to its local circumstances. Because of the wide range of planning factors and stakeholder views involved in planning, the final outcome will sometimes be what you hope for, and other times it will not.

Urban and Rural Town Planning is often more complex with zoning and overlays. These can  require any of the following reports :

  • Land Capability
  • Native Vegetation-removal, offsets
  • Salinity and Erosion-land management reports and investigation
  • Land Management- riparian, covenant, section 173 agreements
  • Koala Reports
  • Waste water restrictions
  • Bushfire risk-BAL, BMO Reports and Risk Management
  • Land Subject to Inundation
  • Environmental Significance Overlays
  • Vegetation Protection Overlays
  • Salinity Management Overlay
  • Erosion Management Overlay

Town Planning aims to find a balance between the development proceeding and conservation and protection of the environment.
