We have a wealth of local knowledge with our Principal Planner being raised on the Northern Beaches and spending the first six years of his career as a town planner for Pittwater Council. We know how the Council works and the processes and policies that can be the difference between an approval or a refusal.
We have helped many of our clients on the Northern Beaches obtain development approval and know how to navigate the mega-council that is the Northern Beaches Council.

The Northern Beaches Council was born due to an amalgamation of the three Northern Beaches Councils (Warringah Council, Pittwater Council and Manly Council) and now services the whole Northern Beaches. The area is characterised by its water views and is a highly sought out area of Sydney. The Northern Beaches is constantly changing and will continue to change as the once isolated area is becoming more accessible through new road networks. The new Hospital at Frenchs Forest has opened which has also helped the area and has put the Northern Beaches in the spotlight for developers and overseas investors. Current landowners are getting good returns from upscaling their sites from single dwellings to dual occupancies or more. Below are an example of common developments for the Northern Beaches.

We explore the theory that as the amount of parking decreases, the appeal of driving gives way to more environmentally friendly transport modes such as walking, cycling, ride-hailing, car pooling and public transport.
Some evidence suggests reducing or capping parking pays off. In cities that have implemented these measures, driving has declined and public transport use has increased.
The redevelopment of the Sydney Football Stadium has been full of controversy with a massive public backlash to the development.
The development has been subject to a lot of public debate with questions as to why the NSW Government are demolishing a functioning stadium instead of upgrading the stadium at a fraction of the cost.
