Bayview Town Planning Experts Council DAs

Outsource the town planning and get your development approved by Council

Northern Beaches town planners you can trust!

Bayview is one of the greatest places in Sydney and no one knows Bayview and the Northern Beaches town planning more than Town Planning Collective with our Principal Planner having worked as a town planner within the Northern Beaches Council for over 5 years. We have extensive experience in obtaining development applications approvals for developments with Northern Beaches Council working with a variety of local architects and building designers.

The Northern Beaches Council planning controls are complex with three different sets of Local Environmental Plans and Development control plans for the original three council areas (Warringah, Pittwater and Manly).

We have a wealth of local knowledge with our Principal Planner being born and raised on the Northern Beaches and spending the first six years of his career as a town planner for Pittwater Council.

We know the planning on the northern beaches better than any other consultants!

We know how the Council works and the processes and policies that can be the difference between an approval or a refusal. We have helped many of our clients on the Northern Beaches obtain development approval and know how to navigate the mega-council that is the Northern Beaches Council.

Our Key Services

Statement of Environmental Effects

The corner stone of any development application! The statement of environmental effects of SoEE is a required document under the EP&A Act and provides an account for what the project entails and if the development complies with the relevant standards and controls.

Development Applications

Lodging development applications is one of our primary tasks for clients. The DA Lodgement is complex and different for every Council so most of our clients engage us to lodge the application on their behalf to their Council.

Objection Letters

Neighbour development objection letters are one of our most frequent enquiries. Our principal planning has an extensive experience in objection letters and can assist you with mitigating your concerns regarding the development application.

Advice and Support

Most Council duty planners have an extensive backlog (and when they are contacted they provide little to no information) so we provide a free advice and support service. Book a 15 minute free discussion today and see how we can answer your enquiries.

The type of developments we work with...

NSW is experiencing a development boom over the last three years and the boom continues despite the interest rate rise. Savy property developers are maximising on their developments while there is a lull in sales so that once the sale prices rise again they will be on the front foot. Below is an example of some of the development types we assist with for their approvals!

Dwelling House

Our top enquiry is in relation to a dwelling house and how to push the envelope on the development potential. We have helped many of our clients get the home of their dreams despite height limits and floor space ratio restrictions.

Dual Occupancy

Every other general enquiry we receive is in regard to whether a Dual occupancy is permissible for their site. This is a council specific enquiry and we are more than happy to assist our clients with their concerns!

Multi-dwelling housing

Why build 2 houses when you could build 4! Multi dwelling housing, also known as terrace housing or town houses, allows you to build multiple dwellings on the one lot and then subdivide through strata subdivision.

Residential flat building

Residential flat buildings or "unit blocks" are becoming more common place as housing diversity is encouraged within NSW. The buildings are governed by design guidelines and legislation and need a expert town planner to assist with the approval.


Change of use for a restaurant/cafe or a takeaway food venue is a common Council development application we assist with. whether it is a new trendy cafe, a new restaurant or a Boutique Beer Bar in Bayview or Mona Vale, we can help get your approval!


Subdivision has become an easy access to money for many first time developers who wish to maximise on their return while the prices are still high! Many of our clients are taking advantage of generous minimum lot sizes and subdividing their properties into two or more lots.

Shop top housing

Shop top housing is a popular development type for developments on the fringe of the zones and for other sites that want to take advantage of their development standards.

Commercial/Industrial Buildings

Commercial or industrial buildings are specific buildings to their business or industrial zonings. These types of developments require expertise from an experienced town planner to assist with the approval.

Fitness studio/gym

Fitness studios/gyms or other types of recreational facilities are as popular as ever! We have assisted many clients with their DA approval for change of use for their fitness industry business.
