Land and Environment Court Expert Witness

At times development applications can be contentious or a developer may not be satisfied with the outcome. This can result in a merits appeal before the Land and Environment Court.

Our Director of Planning and Strategy, Steve Thompson, has acted as independent expert witness on Council’s behalf for an appeal against refusal of a development application involving rural land which was contrary to an existing DCP. Our Principal Planner, Cinnamon Dunsford, has also acted as an expert planning witness in a number of merits appeals involving proposed tourist accommodation and seniors living developments.

Both Steve Thompson and Cinnamon Dunsford are both highly experienced planners with specific knowledge of regional planning issues. Both are available to act as independent expert planning witnesses in appeals before the Land and Environment Court.
