Planning Permits for Architects
PLANNING PERMITS FOR ARCHITECTS IN THE CORPORATE, COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL SECTORS BY EXPERT TOWN PLANNING CONSULTANTS.
We are relied on by Architects to provide transparent advice and avoid the costs and time delays associated with redesigns.
GETTING PLANNING PERMIT APPROVAL
You’re a good architect. But you know you need planning permits before anything else. And time could be better spent on what you do best. Or maybe you’ve taken a planning permit as far as you can, but hit complications?
We understand you can’t do everything. And let’s face it, managing the planning permit process can be a long, constrictive, stressful chore. We know that’s what you’re thinking because our town planning consultants work for architects every day.
At present we’re obtaining planning approval for the redevelopment of the Porsche Centre in Collingwood, four large, new education projects and a restaurant refurbishment in the City of Yarra, and various multiple dwellings on a lot in various municipalities – all projects managed by architects.
Because of our planning consultants experience with the permit process. We know how councils work. We know people at councils. We use our expertise to get you certainty about time frames, about planning scheme controls, about application and information requirements, about permit conditions and ultimately about getting your plans approved.
Of course our consultants provide feedback during the design phase. Of course we provide clarity on council requirements. Of course we advocate for your plans. Of course we push back on unreasonable council requests. Of course we chase council until the decision is made. Of course we liaise with Surveyors, Traffic Engineers, Acoustic Engineers, Signage businesses, Arborists, Landscape Architects, Waste Management businesses, and Sustainable Design Assessors.
So you don’t have to.
Our role is to remove uncertainty and reduce the time it takes to get you permits. We want you to have confidence in the planning permit application process.
You can familiarise yourself with the nine steps of the planning permit application process and, or, you can contact us to discuss your project with a town planning consultant.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Even after pre-application advice, councils get vague when it comes to the details of design. Even when I thought I’d addressed issues that have been raised, there have invariably been shocks for myself and my clients when it comes to the devil being in the detail. CS Town Planning now assist me with thorough planning advice early in the design process to avoid those headaches, and they have had a good measure of success in pushing back when councils overreach. They are worth it.JOHN DE SILVA – ARCHITECT – MELBOURNE
