About Town Planning Collective

A Little About Us

We are a family owned and run business located in Newcastle NSW. We are proud of our humble origin story that started with our Principal Planner deciding that there was a better way of approaching town planning to make it understandable and accessible for the general public! Our first office was our dining room table and we have gone from strength to strength and have gone through a pandemic to get to where we are now! 

We know that the Council approval process can be daunting and that town planning seems to confusing! It is our goal to make town planning simple for everyone!

We have a high success rate for our enquiries converting to jobs with clients that speak with Josh, our Principal Planner,  regarding their development as they want him to assist with their project as it is explained in plain English rather than vocational jargon!

What makes the Town Planning Collective Unique?

We have extensive experience in development assessment and strategic planning with our planners having worked at high levels within Councils around Sydney and Newcastle and within the private sector. Having worked on both sides of the planning table our planners know the ins and outs of handling the development process through the gauntlet that is Council. We know how to navigate all the relevant legislation and our speciality is finding loop holes or “Creative” planning ways to gain approval.

Approximately 90% of our projects are located in Sydney and regularly work with Councils such as Blacktown Council, Campbelltown Council, Camden Council, Georges River Council, Mosman Council, Hills Shire Council, Parramatta Council, Ku-Ring-Gai Council, North Sydney Council, City of Sydney Council, Northern Beaches Council, Randwick City Council, Woollahra Council, Hornsby Council and Inner West Council.

We also regularly deal with regional Councils such as Central Coast Council, Mid North Coast Council, Newcastle Council, Lake Macquarie City Council, Singleton Council, Cessnock Council, Maitland Council and Port Stephens Council.

Due to our diverse skills we are comfortable providing town planning support for all NSW Councils.

Let's work together!
