Planning Law

Bennett & Philp Lawyers advise on planning laws often in consultation with a town planner and other expert consultants.

We consider planning issues in due diligence, advise on potential development opportunities and conduct planning appeals for appellants or respondents to such appeals.

We understand the complex legislative framework of planning laws and our experience is accross the various Local Government Acts, the Local Government (Planning and Environment) Act: 1990, the Integrated Planning Act: 2009 and the Sustainable Planning Act: 2009 in relation to property development.
