We have been successful in gaining approval for thousands of development applications (DA’s). These range from a simple carport (still highly contentious in some areas!) to very large scale developments involving iconic buildings such as those at Sydney Olympic Park and Centrepoint (Westfield Sydney).
Regardless of size, it is the quality of the submission that is important. Not only should it be appealing and present the proposal in its

We have been involved with the following significant DA/ State Significant Applications:
Our emphasis is on quality advice so whether you are a private developer who wants to maximise development value or a government body wanting to ensure a rigorous environmental assessment and the best planning outcome, we can assist in achieving your objectives.
