Planning & Environment
Resolving planning and environment issues is crucial to the success of infrastructure and property development projects. Getting this right means our clients can positively impact the urban and regional landscapes they are striving to improve.
Our Planning & Environment Expertise
The Planning & Environment team at Maddocks is one of the biggest in Australia. With that comes an unrivalled depth of experience and the ability to advise on the complete range of planning transactions.
Environmental concerns are now a large part of most government and business transactions. Our incisive and strategic management of these concerns is a large part of the work we do. We also provide sustainability, emissions trading, climate change, water and energy advice.
We deliver to local, state and Commonwealth clients, as well as private sector businesses and regulators, clear, practical and actionable solutions that help these organisations find a pathway to the successful completion of projects.
Planning issues we advise on include strategic guidance to navigate the latest legal and regulatory changes, the entire development and approval process, Crown land issues and planning permits and schemes.
When it comes to the environment, our expertise spans land management, including access, contamination remediation and Aboriginal and cultural heritage disputes. We’re also relied on to advise on the interplay between Commonwealth and state laws.
