Legislative Expertise and AdvocacyWhat does a private town planner do? The way we see it, we combine our learnings in micro and macro urban planning systems with our professional understanding of local and state planning legislation to support our clients through the development assessment process.
In addition to problem solving, negotiating and advocating, we also do all the admin and extensive documentation necessary to process your development application.
Why UP Queensland?
We have been servicing South East Queensland for the past 5 years, so we are established but not stale. We have a proven track record of obtaining town planning approval for our many happy clients. Our speciality is residential development approvals, however, we often assist with select commercial and industrial projects.

Great experience, always felt welcome to ask questions, and everything was done quickly and followed up promptly. Highly recommended
Excellent communication throughout the application process, continued to follow up with Council and update me regarding progress and expected timeframes. Very easy to deal with, application progressed well with no stress. Very reasonable fees. I have recommended them to friends and family and will use again.

Jess and the team at Urban Planners Queensland helped us through obtaining development approval for our house renovations. They were extremely professional and clear in helping us understand what could be done, how the application process works and what costs were involved. They relieved so much stress for us as they handled the whole process, plus it was lovely working with such genuine people. We now recommend Urban Planners Queensland to anyone looking for house development approvals!
Super responsive team and great guidance for what is needed. Their high-levels of knowledge and genuine interest in Town Planning helps them to stay on top of the process (and councils) for a faster turnaround with positive outcomes

Thoughts: “Town planning is a necessary part of a well-functioning society. Every part of our day, where we sleep, eat, work or play is the result of a town planning decision being made, whether that be by a professional, political or market-driven decision-maker. As the world becomes more regulated and legislation tightened to negate the non-ideal outcomes, private town planners are going to become essential. As a consultant, we will be here to support our clients and good outcomes”.
