Environmental & Planning

Environmental and planning law are increasingly recognised as indivisible areas. The area fits very naturally within the established strengths of Macquarie Lawyers as a commercial/property law firm. Our qualified team provides proactive advice and assistance in acting for end-users such as investors, landlords and property developers on the full range of planning issues including:

  • On-site specific developments
  • Large scale developments
  • Leisure and retail projects
  • Heritage protection issues
  • Litigation in the Land and Environment Court
  • Extensive negotiation with Councils and other regulatory bodies.

Understanding and negotiating a way through existing planning procedures and capitalising on the opportunities it affords requires a deep knowledge of the law as well a flexible client focused approach.

This specialist focus complements the construction/development flavour we have with our clients and cements the business relationship that is the core element of our practice philosophy.
