    Victorian planning rules insist that any residential development must respect the existing “neighbourhood character” of the area, or contribute to its “preferred” character.

    Failing to address neighbourhood character appropriately in your planning applications and designs can result in outright rejection, costly rework, or expensive planning appeals.

    On the other hand, understanding neighbourhood character can help a developer identify profitable opportunities that others miss.


    Planning expert David Klingberg will be sharing his in-depth expertise on how to navigate the planning minefied that is “neighbourhood character” and turn it to your advantage on your next property development project.

    David will cover:

    • Neighbourhood Character – What is it?
    • Why is Neighbourhood Character important for development?
    • What is a “Neighbourhood Character Study”?
    • How is Neighbourhood Character implemented in Victorian Planning Schemes?
    • Tricks of the Trade – Responding to Neighbourhood Character for a Successful Town Planning Application
    • If you’re into property development, or considering any future development project, then you can’t afford to miss this session!
