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.
