Development Applications

PPLAN can provide preliminary advice about whether your project is likely to be approved, approval costs and timelines.  We have considerable experience and knowledge of complex local Council and State Government rules about development.

It is important your application is properly made with all the relevant information included.

A poorly made application can be rejected after a couple of weeks, which means you lose valuable time and money.
