Giving expert advice on developments ranging from residential mixed-use, retail and town centres, commercial office buildings through to industrial and residential estates and subdivisions, our team are on hand to assist you.

Group Development Services’ town planners can take your land development proposal from development concept to Development Approval.

We will assess all planning controls that apply to a site looking at constraints and restrictions and advising on the best expected outcome. With our in-house civil engineers and surveyors our team can prepare and design, detailed subdivision plans and reports to be put forward to council to assist in getting Development Approvals. We can also advise on and engage other consultants necessary to prepare and support your application. Our town planners and engineers collaborate to avoid any compliance issues.
