24 Aug What does a Town Planner Do?
So what does a ‘Town Planner’ typically do on a practical day to day basis? The principle role of most Town Planners in Melbourne, put simply, is to prepare or assess planning applications. Town planners prepare and submit development/land use applications as consultants or assess applications as employees of local government or under special circumstances, state government.
Town planners are generalists with a diverse knowledge of the development industry. We have specialist knowledge and understanding of the plethora of planning requirements and regulations at both State or Local level. We endeavour to balance the aspirations of landowners and developers with the needs and concerns of the community and the policy framework which in Victoria is set out in a statutory document called a “Planning Scheme” (https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/schemes-and-amendments/about-planning-schemes).
