Town Planning involves strategic planning, controlling new and existing developments and monitoring changes within the community. As communities grow, town planners manage the increasing demand by designing and developing strategies to meet community’s future needs. Town planners can prepare or assess development applications and once a proposal has been assessed they can coordinate an array of consultants such as architects, surveyors, civil engineers and landscape architects to work in compliance with the Planning Scheme. Overall, town planners guide and assess future development of expanding cities, towns and regions in many areas including housing, land and property development, education, community projects, tourism and transport.
A town planner assists and advises developers and landowners with their development ideas and plans. They will professionally develop strategies and reports based on their assessments of your proposed development to ensure all local council regulations and policies are met. Town planners aren’t limited to one type of development but rather have a multitude of areas of expertise; from assisting with simple house extensions to large multistory project proposals – their role is multi-faceted. Town planners are well educated on the legislation of small-and-large scale developments and work alongside local councils. When proposing a development, you must make sure that your development fits within the Council and State legislation. By meeting Council guidelines, this will ensure the best chance of success.
If you are a landowner or developer with an idea or concept, town planners can advise you whether your proposed development meets regulatory standards in accordance with local council regulations. Enlisting the service of a town planner to assist your proposed development plans, can hasten the development proposal process and ensure any issues meeting the councils Planning Scheme are quickly addressed and rectified.
