New approval auditing service

In light of Council cracking down on builders not constructing things in accordance with the Council approved development plans, Steffan Town Planning now offers an audit service. We can come in prior to construction and review building plans or at BA stage to ensure full compliance with the approved plans and make sure you're not exposed to compliance actions. Please get in touch with one of our planners to discuss further.

Do you know if someone is applying for a unit development next door?

We always recommend that all of our clients sign up to https://www.planningalerts.org.au/ which is a website that will send you email notifications if someone was to lodge a development application within a certain proximity of your address.

Their website tells the story perfectly: You’d probably know if your next-door neighbour was going to knock their house down. But you might live in blissful ignorance that your favorite old cinema or pub five streets away will never reopen because its going be converted into luxury flats, until the bulldozers turned up that is.

What to do if someone lodges an application that you have concerns about? Well, you can always lodge a public submission opposing or supporting the proposal to Local Council and we can assist in that process.
