TOWN PLANNING (DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION)
Town planning is only a requirement for your development in certain circumstances. A perfect example of this would be if you have a Queenslander home or house dating pre 1946. Another example would be the division of your land, both requiring a Development Application through a town planning consultant.
Generally, pre 1946 homes are located within a Traditional Building Character overlay and any works to the home eg. Partial demolition, extensions to the front or sides, ect. may trigger a DA application.
If this stage is required for your project we use the plan set formed in the Design development stage to get you quotes & signed up with the planners. They will then assist you to lodge an application to gain you Development Approval.
- My husband and I have been working with Haydn to renovate the upstairs of an old 1906 Queenslander and excavate and build under. He has terrific design ideas for the addition, he is sensitive to the original and he has great energy for the project. He is a delight to deal with. There is no ego, he listens and adapts/explains in a way that achieves a great result. He is a team player. We are very happy with his communication and attention to detail in the planning and love what he has created for us.

- We have absolutely loved working with Michael on our renovation in Sherwood. Michael has worked with us every step of the way from the very first site visit through to conceptual design and planning and all the way through to construction. Michael and his team have patiently and enthusiastically accommodated all of our questions and changes and their ability to come up with creative and innovative solutions to design problems has helped turn our vision into an amazing dream home for our family. We cannot speak more highly of Michael and his team.
