We process development applications using the six stage best practice process - established by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment - regardless of their scale, location and complexity and whether they are residential, commercial or industrial projects.
It’s important to get it right, right from the start.

Further comprehensive checks - including that your site is suitable, your project meets all regulations and how the surrounding natural and built environment might be impacted - are made in this third stage.
