G’day. What does a planner do for property owners? I’m Max Fragar from the Council Approval Group.
What does the town planner do?In some sense, a town planner plans towns. In our case, we’ve focused on what they do in the town planning system because the New South Wales, Victorian, and all the systems, the key players in the development approval system are planners.
They coordinate all actions and coordinate all the people involved in formulating a project. It might be they’ve got to work with an architect, which we have. They might have to work with a surveyor. A project might need a traffic engineer. The planner pulls together all components in the project formulation. And the planner then works with the council planner, who assesses the application, and hopefully gets the best result for you.
So you need a town planner that knows the town planning system, that works through all the components of a project and that gets the best result.
