We understand the planning system in NSW and can help you successfully navigate the system. 


our Approach to planning

Good planning positions your organisation and the community for the future. An integrated approach takes into account the vision of your organisation as well as local opportunities and challenges, aligning them to achieve a common outcome for your organisation or the community.

We are experts in both statutory and strategic planning and have experience in issues that arise in a regional context such coastal hazards, environmental impacts, social impacts and economic development.

Our planning services are led by Steve Thompson along with Cinnamon Dunsford who are qualified planners with extensive experience and knowledge in the NSW planning system.

We can also combine our planning services with our community engagement expertise and grant knowledge – giving us the ability to provide you with holistic and practical solutions.
