With over 18 years town planning and land development experience, LB Planning provides local and state wide consultancy services to clients in a personal manner and at competitive rates.

Whether your project requires initial strategic land use planning analysis, urban design input, formal approval and/or implementation support, LB Planning is well positioned to assist.

The town planning and subdivision approvals process is often complicated, unclear and convoluted. With extensive project experience in the land development industry and a strong working relationship with local and state government agencies, LB Planning can lead you through the various stages of the land development process.

From two lot subdivisions, small scale developments to major projects or larger residential estates, no project is too large or small. LB Planning has strong affiliation with other consultant groups, therefore should specific disciplinary skills or additional resources be required for your project, other services are readily accessible and can be drawn upon if required. These may include environmental assessment, fire management, civil/structural engineering, architectural/building design, economic analysis or project management services, to name a few.

LB Planning brings its clients towards project realisation and sound planning outcomes by encouraging quality land development, applying strong planning principles and attention to the relevant statutory and strategic planning framework.



LB Planning is well equipped to provide you with early planning advice and ideas to inform an initial concept vision and/or formally engage the land use planning process on your behalf. Whether you are seeking qualified advice on any particular town planning matter, wish to confirm land use development options for your property or purely investigating land to subdivide and/or develop, LB Planning can assist.



LB Planning can also support or coordinate your project after the approvals process, through to completion, either as project coordinator or part of the project team.
