Town Planning

The approval pathway can be complex and Bennett + Bennett is here to navigate you through the maze with minimal fuss. With a wealth of experience and an innate understanding of the planning system, we get results for our clients and won’t settle for an average result, managing the development approval process from project inception, due diligence, approvals, development compliance and plan sealing.

We are experts at seeking development approvals for our clients.  We are not “tick box” town planners – our involvement is an investment in the success of the project.

We bring strategic thinking informed by our collective wealth of experience, guide our clients through the nuances of the development application process, assemble and manage consultant teams using our well established network of reliable consultants and negotiate and advocate for our client’s projects and subsequent development approvals.  


Recognising the multifaceted nature of the urban development, we prioritise open and collaborative communication with all stakeholders involved. By engaging in meaningful dialogue with government bodies, local communities, and other relevant parties, we ensure that our town planning strategies align with diverse interests and considerations.

Acquiring and selling property involves a substantial commitment, and conducting comprehensive due diligence is essential for reducing risks and achieving a sound investment aligned with your project and financial objectives.

We specialise in preparing highest and best use reports to inform land valuations, land resumptions, compensation cases and infrastructure charges recalculation.  Our highest and best use reports are prepared in accordance with the relevant requirements and are trusted and used by solicitors and valuers.  

We assist our clients to seek market value compensation from local government for trunk infrastructure works and land.  Our team understands the intricacies of this process and works tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive fair and equitable compensation for their assets.

Bennett + Bennett will assist you to move through development compliance and plan sealing in an efficient and timely manner during the final stage of your project - when it counts most.  Bennett + Bennett is responsible for the delivery of development compliance and plan sealing on SE QLD’s largest and complex projects and it is well equipped to manage the post approval process for projects of all scales.
