    Where is the land?

    I am using a town planner now who are located about 5km away from me – yet I have never met them and don’t plan to.

    I think it generally best to find a town planner in the suburb of the land, or surrounding areas as those planners may be more familiar with the relevant council than someone far away.

    Definitely – use a local planner. They’ll have a firm understanding of the local planning laws/council and if there are specific requirements the council will be looking for, exceptions they’ve allowed in the past etc. This is incredibly important as it can be the difference between getting an approval or just being knocked back without any further consideration.

    Try Frank Perry at Perry Town Planning. He is my father, so i am biased of course, but he has spoken at a few of Steve’s events so is pretty well known in this community. The web site is http://www.town-planning.com.au, you can get contact details there.

    Regards
    Alistair
