"CS acted for us in a short list VCAT planning application against Council. Prior to the hearing we were kept informed of what was happening and they responded promptly to our inquiries; they arranged to meet us at the site so that we could give them our opinion as to why the proposed development was consistent with the neighbourhood character and neighouring buildings. At the hearing it became obvious that the research and preparation for the case had been detailed and extensive by CS. Several steams of argument to support our case were presented. The presentation to the tribunal was clear, logical and ordered and amounted to a compelling case. About half way through the presentation I began to feel confident that we would likely win and in the end I was very pleased with the result which was a decision in our favour."
