No one knows the Hunter Valley and the different Council’s Development Application approval systems like Outlook Planning and Development. We have extensive experience in obtaining development applications approvals for developments within the Hunter Valley and all of NSW with our Principal Planner working as the Head of Town Planning for Singleton Council. While we have local knowledge of the local approval process we also use our Sydney based experience to gain approvals faster or where others can’t.
We have seen a massive increase of investors from outside of the Hunter Valley (Sydney, Melbourne) and from abroad (China, Japan and India) which has dramatically increased the desirability of the area. The land prices have gone up by exponential measures and the area is waiting for substantial investment in development.
