We have been engaged to facilitate environmental planning approvals for a wide range of urban development projects in Queensland and New South Wales, with urban growth centres in Southeast Queensland being a focus.
The examples we provide include large projects of note on greenfield sites, and smaller projects with complex or interesting challenges. The examples also demonstrate our experience in different parts of the urban matrix – noting that the challenges we see with infill development differ from those encountered on the urban fringe.
We have included some of our older projects, because they are now largely or wholly constructed, and their integration into the natural and urban landscape is complete.
- Ellendale, Upper Kedron
- Era, Capalaba
- Waterline, Redlands
- Keperra, Brisbane
- Carseldine Urban Village
- Gumdale, Brisbane
- Ripley Valley
We have coordinated ecological and bushfire hazard assessment for a wide range of rural and park residential projects in Queensland and New South Wales. In recent years, this form of development has succumbed to more restrictive landuse planning (e.g. SEQ Regional Plan). Nonetheless, opportunities for this form of development remain, and we continue to advise on projects of various size.
A decline in rural residential projects has been matched by a rise in the redevelopment of individual large lots on the urban fringe. This has been particularly noticeable in the Greater Brisbane region, where large lots are often subject to restrictive zoning and overlays (e.g. Koala habitat protection) or community sensitivity.
